I nearly did not go as the light was not really very good and it was still raining but needed to get out with the camera. Having said that I did not come home with many shots as I spent a fair amount of time trying to get some shots of reed warbler but they had other ideas. So I ended up with..

I also caught sight of another very small new visitor to the garden which has so far escaped the attentions of the neighbours cats.
