On a year when travelling any distance was just not possible the local patch came to the rescue giving me many highlights that included several rare and very rare finds.
The longest trip of the year was a great day out with Pete and Paul down to Farlington Marshes. This was before the Covid situation really got going and there was little sign of what was to follow. The plan was to hopefully get some Bearded Tits that had been showing well in the reed-beds there, but we only had a few long distant views of them. There were plenty of Pintail and Brent Geese though to photograph as they flew over us.
My next highlight came in the form of a pair of Barn Owl that were regularly hunting in a local meadow. I managed 3 sessions with with the owls and my favourite photo of the year was achieved here.
