Only planned to pick up a couple of things, but *that* never works, so I had to come back home afterwards to empty the rucksack before heading back out to the day's main plan; a trip to the London Wetland Centre. Via Jacob's photographic; no point trying to photograph wild waterfowl with a maximum lens of 55mm (x1.6). Well that's my excuse.
Anyway, *very* fine afternoon down at the LWC; distinctly warm, but very pleasant and worth an afternoon's visit. Then back via only Sainsbury's, and roast veg shortly.
I'll try and get some photos out shortly - but I promise nothing as regards quality as I'm entirely new to this camera/lens.

Some crops, no other retouches. Frankly life's too short; even *browsing* 8Mpx images on this laptop is painful.
ETA2 Descriptions added to images, comments welcome.
A couple of events for your diaries upcoming:
Tomorrow: Spitalfields Green fair
August 1-5: Great British Beer Festival. Featuring, I'm told, a cider bar with 60 options.
