Cambridge At Night

In town with the TPG.  Used to get my photo students to use a tripod to capture all three lights on a traffic lights lit at the same time.  That was in the days of film, when the difference between the intensities of the lights was hard to control.  The willow in No. 4 was lighted by a small torch during the 24 second exposure.

Activities at Wicken Fen

Sadie and Meredith made nest boxes, went on a birdwatching walk, discovered what different birds eat and how they catch their food, and made feeders out of Cheerios and dates.

Rolling Road

Peter took Mollie to the rolling road at Fordham and her output was measured at 49 bhp at just under 5000 rpm.  It dropped off after that.

Not Hawfinches Again.

No, not Hawfinches.  The Thrush was busy catching worms and so was the Blackbird, but the Hawfinches stayed away at Wimpole this morning.

Rye Meads

After dropping the girls at Royston we continued down the A10 to this RSPB reserve.  The Kingfishers were not out, but the jays, magpies and crows were.  There were two Dabchicks and the Shovelers shovelled water.  The Fox was taken at an angle through a hide window - as soon as I opened it for a better pic, Todd was gone.
