Lows and highs

I discovered that one of the problems with my Saturday in the rain was condensation on the inside of the eyepiece of my spotting scope. The use of a hairdryer and lounge radiator failed to resolve the problem so off to InFocus at Martin Mere where Andy sent the diseased eyepiece off to the eyepiece hospital. I did however hear about a smew just down the path from swan link hide. It only took five minutes to find, so the journey to the 'Mere was worth it. Calling in at Cuerden on the way home, I saw a song thrush singing his heart out and three great spotted woodpeckers in heated debate on the ownership of one of the trees.... spring is not far away
