Pensthorpe in the Rain

I had Pensthorpe completely to myself in the morning as it was raining and very chilly. The rain eased off over lunch so a few souls braved the reserve but by 3 pm heavy rain set in. I managed the iconic Bearded tit picture. The Lapwings show beautiful colours in dull light while the Long-tailed tit looked a bit bedraggled. The Falcated (?) Teal reveals the quality of Bryan's lens and it also makes flying bird photography possible in the low woodland light.

That 300/2.8L is to die for, as I found out when I borrowed it. How are the biceps after a day holding it? :-)
