Great Crested Grebe with chick
The weather forecast declared that this morning would be warm and sunny from early hours, so the alarm was set for 0400hrs with the intention of cycling to Draycote Water for c0500hrs. Of course, when I opened the door, it was RAINING! Typical! I suppose that opening the door or window is the best form of weather forecasting! I delayed my journey by an hour, until some brightness was seen in the sky, but still got wet! When I arrived at Draycote Water, the morning was improving but in two laps, very little of interest was found! The best was a pair of Great Crested Grebes with a chick.
