26th August

A rather quiet walk along the river this evening included these Goosander in eclipse plumage with the right hand bird clearly showing the loss of flight feathers.

I also saw this interesting atmospheric display (which was rather more striking in real life than this photo shows) with the impression of sunbeams radiating up from the ground. The picture is facing east with the evening sun low behind me.

Yesterday a good series of Hobby sightings continued with a bird hunting over the Magic Garden and on the lake here there were a couple of Brown Hawkers and good numbers of these Common Darters
