We had arranged to meet everyone at the Mcdonalds in Beecles for 7:30 am where we had coffee before moving on to Carlton marsh located just west of Lowestoft.The weather was absolutely fantastic with bright clear skys.
As we walked along we discussed the various aspects of what would be covering. I had established that everyone was aware of how ISO worked and how it controlled the exposure.There wasn't a great deal to see but we had a very nice Mute Swan in a ditch beside the footpath giving close views in perfect light. The group all took this oppurtunity to use their cameras as the white against the blue water gave a lovely contrast.
We headed back to the carpark where we gave directions to Leathes Ham near the near centre of Lowestoft.The site is interesting as it attracts a number of different speice of duck which includes a number of escaped wildfowl with a male Wood duck displaying and calling. The wintering female Goosander was now coming to bread and showed down to a few feet with everyone taking loads of pictures.The lighting conditions were a little tricky with the light coming from the side and constantly changing.
The group had excellent oppurtunties to photograph Mallard, Tufted duck, Gadwall, Goosander and Coot
