I??ve been threatening to return to the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust at Arundel all week but work and the weather kept getting in the way. Today everything finally fell into place and I made a point of getting there for opening time to beat the crowds. I spent quite a while walking slowly through the reed beds in the hope of seeing a water vole or two. There were some promising rustlings from the reeds at one point but whatever was creating the noise was evidently feeling shy and didn??t show its face. Maybe next time…. The birds were more cooperative and, as always, I encountered one of the centre??s very tame robins who almost came too close to me for my lens to be able to focus ?? I think they must teach them how to pose for the camera!
