I spent most of the Bank Holiday weekend at home doing paperwork, but Harriet and I managed to get out to Fowlmere for a couple of hours on Sunday afternoon.  It was dull and cloudy, and - apart from the highlight of seeing a Crane flying high overhead - there wasn't a great deal to report.

The only birds within capture distance were Greylag Geese.

This pair had just been cleared for take-off.

They might be common as muck, but they're still magnificent birds.
