At Reception Hide, my good fortune took a bad turn. Though there were plenty of gadwalls, shovelers, mallards, a couple of little egrets, a heron or two, cormorants, the odd visit of a kingfisher and a few marsh harriers to look at and enjoy, it was all marred by my camera. It was working like normal to begin with, taking a few good shots of little egrets, but then when turning it back on to try and photograph a kingfisher at a nearby perch, it went faulty. The lens was going in and out uncontrollably before it went black with a message about there being a problem with the lens and to try again later. Then it turns itself off. It appears that moisture had gotten inside the camera just like it did back in January when snow caused it to not work completely until two days of drying out later.
