Eastbourne Sussex

There was a crisp cold start to the day and the chill continues.  We walked along the front to see the pier which had been renovated after a fire two years ago, it looked very smart.

Lackford Lakes Nature Reserve, Suffolk

I visited Lankford Lakes Nature Reserve for the first time and was rewarded with my first sighting of  a Kingfisher.   I found it a challenge to photograph as the camera focused on the reeds behind the bird. Once the bird had been and collected a fish or a grub it didn't return for about 40 minutes so patience was a requirement to get another chance at another picture! I ended up using  manual focus and hoped that the bird would land in the same spot on the same stick. Unfortunately, my ISO was too high but at least I have a photograph to prove I saw it! Who says the early bird doesn't catch the worm.

Four of us set off to attend the PAGB inter-club competition at Ormskirk. We decided to make a weekend of it and we spent Friday and Saturday night in Blackpool. It rained on Friday night but Saturday was bright despite it being really cold. The Blackpool illuminations were pretty spectacular and stretched for miles.

I was amazed to discover there were three Piers and all slightly different. Ann and I decided to make the best of seeing all we could and after walking 17 km I felt as though my legs had been bolted on!
