A very foggy three hours sat in the hide at Lower Tamar Lake on the Cornwall/Devon border, no one else about, a few birds to see including eight pairs of Goosander ( this is always a reliable site for these) but all a bit distant for photography , which was a shame as two males were fighting over a big fish which would have made for some good shots, but there were some close Common Snipe and a Water Rail came very close as well as a Kingfisher putting in an appearance.
|Common Snipe-not sure if its swimming or paddling|

|Common Snipe-Many birds take a little jump out of the water after bathing to dry off, I try to be ready for this.|
