chinking skulker

having not had the camera out of the bag for over 11 days due to the appalling weather / total lack of light this morning dawned brightish and a bit sunny before the freezing fog rolled in! it cleared for the late morning and the local patch was almost buzzing; drake Red-crested Pochard, Red-throated Diver, Long-tailed Duck and adult Med Gull all on one pit was amazing but all apart from the pochard were way out in the middle----within 50m there had been a Cetti's calling two days previously so I put the camera back in the car and went to listen for it again, as they never actually show well!!!!!!!! so there it was out on the low branches of hawthorns in the sun! return with camera and spend 90 minutes watching the vegetation move before it climbs into the thick of a thorn bush into the sun----well the best views I have had this winter and two terrible pics of the skulker; moral never leave the camera in the car
