Reybridge (Friday 21st May 2021)
My return to Reybridge was sooner than expected, but occurred because returning home on Wednesday I discovered the left lens from my glasses was missing, and I eventually deduced that it had most likely dropped out when I had got back to the car and was loading outer clothes and cameras and bags onto the front seat.
I parked at the same spot and found the lens, but sadly it had been run over and broken. Anyway, while there I had a look at the Avon and saw this pair of swans in the distance. They were so far away I couldn't even spot the cygnets or the nesting mallard until I blew up the image on the desktop PC back home.
Afterwards I drove on to the shops at Melksham, and walked up to the boat house, also on the Avon. The mallard drake (in Extras) is halfway into going into eclipse.
