Our visit to Rye Meads on Sunday 11th December coincided with the coldest spell of weather for several years. We arrived to find the reserve cloaked in freezing fog and with very little open water so we were not hopeful of much bird life to photograph, The commonest and friendliest species was definitely the Robin (Ian Willis,John Kirkelionis )
The flocks of winter visitors were very wary but some managed good images of feeding Redwing (Duncan Locke).
As well as many Black-headed Gulls on the River (Duncan Locke, Ann Miles), there were some Common Gulls on the ice with their green legs (John Kirkelionis). Chris Holt recorded some of the abundant frosted cobwebs
Ian Willis captured a fleeting glimpse of a Muntjac.
As always, coots provided the main action chasing each other across the river (Chris Holt, Ann Miles)
