Recent failures!

Not something I really want to record on my blog but.....
my first two outings this year have not been entirely satisfactory.
Last week a three and a half hour wait in a muddy car park in Jevington, East Sussex waiting for the long stay Rough Legged Buzzard to take flight resulted in a distant shot of the bird perched in a tree almost impossible to see without bins...Here is a 700mm shot!!!

...and cropped heavily!!!
Today was my first opportunity to try for the Dusky Warbler at the Chichester G.P. site.
Yes we saw it...for a couple of nano seconds: that was it! 

A Robin kept fooling us ...the only photo of any bird today.
The joys of birding!
