I really do not like the heat! I prefer my days to be sunny but cool, so expecting a rather hot day, I arrived at Brandon Marsh at 0500hrs. At this early hour, I had the reserve to myself and hoped that something good would show. As normal, of course it didn't, so I enjoyed taking images of some of the commoner birds. A list of birds seen can be found at the end of this post. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy my images. (See also the Grey Heron entry).
