Drake Garganey at Newburgh Priory Lake

Drake Garganey at Newburgh Priory Lake- watercoulour in sketchbook

The Garganey is still present at Newburgh Priory Lake. Yesterday morning I arrived at the lake before dawn and he was very close and making the distinctive rattle call. The light was superb as the sun rose, striking warm light low across the water. There was a sharp frost overnight the temperature down to minus 2 C.
