New Moon

What a difference 2 days make. The moon is larger and because it comes up 2 hours later, it is now a lot whiter. This officially is a Blue Moon as there have been 2 full moons this month. Later tonight, there will be a lunar eclipse, but we wont see it here.

Bumble Bee foraging

Had a lovely walk around the RSPB site at Canvey West Marshes today, not a lot of bird activity as the lakes were very low, but spotted this Bumble Bee gather some Autumn nectar.
