It started off very foggy this morning. I took Taz for a walk along the canal early this morning as it was the only place I could think of that wouldn't be flooded.
Darkness and fog, not easy to photograph with a phone.
The fog still hadn't lifted when I picked Pete up at 8.50am and we headed off intending to look for Waxwings in Lichfield. Pete reckoned we should hang on a bit and give the fog a chance to lift. It sounded like a good idea, so we went to the CO-OP and had a full English and a mug of Coffee a piece. Very nice!
After breakfast, we set off to Lichfield in search of Waxwings. Some had been reported near the Post Office, and sure enough about a dozen were there on our arrival.
I held the iPhone up to the scopes eyepiece and took a quick video to show how thick the fog was.
My second Waxwings of the year, and a lifer for Pete. I tried to get a few pictures but the fog and poor light made it very difficult. These again taken with the iPhone handheld to the scope eyepiece.
To be honest, am very pleased with how these record shots have turned out. Also edited on the iPhone. Opens a lot of birding possibilities.
