Today I traveled to Waltham Brooks in the hope to see some Barn Owls or Short Eared Owls which have been spotted there earlier in December 2012. This was however before the recent heavy rains which has now flooded the area. Once I arrived my first problem was finding somewhere to park, as the car park had flooded, once finding somewhere to park I had to get into the reserve without getting too wet!
Because of the flooding there was very little to see, a few Tuffed ducks and Shellducks out on the lake too far to photograph and a Kestrel flying overhead. Below is one of the few images I took of the sunset over the river showing the increase in river level to anyone who has been there before.
