Pennington Flash

The shag was still on Pengies pool this morning and showed much better than yesterday. The light was not great again, but at least it swam right in front of the hide today. Unlike yesterday when it spent most of its time in the centre of the pool, today it did a circuit of the perimeter and dived frequently. Also from the hide, water rail and brambling. A female common scoter is on the flash and viewable from Horrock's hide.

Year: 263 (Brambling)

My first brambling of the year. The light was so poor, this photo was taken on a shutter speed of 1/15th of a second! For those who don't do photography, I'd normally hope to take it on anything from 1/125th upwards. Sometimes in Australia shutter speed reached 1/1000th!
