Sawbills like the rain


Will it ever stop raining?  The weather has been particularly depressing this month and I am struggling to remember a January that has been less productive for photography.  Last month however one opportunity did open up as a result of lots of water.  I visit Dumfries annually and always visit a local weir pool that normally attracts half a dozen Goosanders.  When however the river is is spate many more birds appear and on this occasion 31 birds a third of which were drakes fished in the frothing water.
