It was Sunday afternoon and time for my usual afternoon walk. The sun was shining brilliantly - ideal setting for a shoot. I was on my usual traiL along the Avon valley path and was greeted by the usual dog walkers in the area and exchanged some pleasantries. A mute swan passed by. I have taken many pictures of the swan earlier. Couldn’t resist a shot this specimen. The sun went behind the clouds, and light levels diminished. Kept along the path for over 15 mins hoping the sun would appear again. Reached my usual waiting spot up the river and settled down to enjoy the good weather. The sun came out and was shining. During my hour and half of stay managed some decent shots of the coot, a Great Spotted woodpecker and my favorite bird The Robin. It was 4:30 p.m. and time to leave. Removed my camera from the tripod, packed up my kit and started retracing my steps back home.
