We started at Weston Turville, where there was not a bird to be seen. Definitely no sign of the osprey who was spotted there! And there was a howling wind and I'd left my hat in the car, so we moved on pretty quickly.
The Wilstone reservoir was much more profitable. And if there had been a bit more sun would have produced a really memorable day of photography. As it was we got a couple of bursts, enough to illuminate the teal flashes on the sides of the teals, but not for long enough to get a really good lapwing in flight.
|You can see from this lapwing how much difference a bit of sun makes|

|Great spot for lapwings|
|This pied wagtail wasn't keen on having his picture taken|
