Frozed like Block

I spent today sitting by a flood bank in Suffolk. Which is fine, except it didnt creep above freezing until 11am. We got tooled up in our marine gear and thermals and sat tight. There was some corking raptor action just off site with at least 5 Marsh Harriers and a single ringtail Hen Harrier with a Buzzard chucked in as an additional bonus. It clouded up mid morning and we then got pretty damp as it drizzled for the remainder of the day.

A plucky pair of Stonechats were feeding to within feet of us all day and despite the gloom I managed a few reasonable shots.

On the marshes highlights included a Greenshank and a few Black-tailed Godwits. A 1st winter Yellow-legged Gull flew upwinter and we had a bizarre albino Pheasant in the fields behind. Hoping for a drier day tomorrow so that I can get a few more photographs.
