Eclipse 09:25 to 09:40

The Sun and Moon as seen from Cromwell Bottom Reserve.

Before and after maximum. Luckily there was a strong cloud haze so pictures were easy.
The maximum unfortunately, was hidden behind cloud.

Also nearby, this colourful bracket fungus. A few Chiffchaffs around now. Little grebes noisy on the lagoon.

Liked your photos, and i wonder was there any noticeable effect on bird behaviour during the eclipse?

Bruce said...

Hi Birdbox

There was a small drop in birdsong. The light level was like early twilight. The temperature dropped noticeably though.

The bracket is Blushing Bracket, very common on Salix.
