There are blippers out there who check the weather, set the alarm clock and plan the best spot to take a sunrise photo and to be honest the results justify the effort - take a bow Gladders.
Well this morning I got up, had a scratch, wandered into the kitchen and thought there's a pink tinge to the sky. Picked up the P&S and opened the window. Realised that that window didn't open the right way, so opened the other window which meant the silver birch was now in the road. Hey ho, pressed the shutter anyway. As you can see from the above the results justify the effort!
Anyway after yesterdays exertions, today drifted into a lazy day. Finally got into the shower about twelve then bacon sandwich for lunch. A Rose-coloured starling was reported just down the road (well 30 miles down the road) at Inverkeithing, so we decided to take a drive. We arrived about quarter of an hour after it had last been seen. About half a dozen other birders were on the look out for it, but it took Mrs L to locate it and RCB to get off about a dozen shots before it flew off. Although we hung around for another hour that was the last we saw of it - well done Mrs L and well done RCB on getting the shots, there were quite a few others who went home disappointed.
Head over to RCB's journal to see the Rose-coloured Starling - yes we know there's not much rose -coloured about it - it's a juvenile.
