Far Ings nature reserve

I’d almost given up on Far Ings after my last two or three visits when it was cold, miserable and not much to see.  Maybe it was the warmth and some sunshine that helped yesterday, but I also got a few shots of interest.  Families of blackcaps and sedge warblers shared the same bush along the perimeter footpath but I had to wait patiently to get a clear enough shot.  The adult blackcap was just too quick for me and fed his young out of sight.  A couple of families of wrens were deep in the undergrowth.  Sedge warblers and a reed warbler were feeding  at the lake side, a common tern was fishing and I managed to grab a long shot of a hunting kestrel in the adjacent field.  It would have been nice to be 50 metres nearer…  A four-spotted chaser was just in shot and a great crested grebe caught a fish for me.  All in all, a very pleasant day.
