Great Birds Today!

So, a bright if very cold day, a long walk to be had. I wasn't going to make the mistake I made last time and forget my camera, my proper camera, my big camera, my bridge camera.

It was very worth it. There were a lot of birds at the cemetery and on the Blue Lake today. 30-50 very busy redwing, a goldcrest feeding off a gravestone, the new little egret on its island, and a cormorant sailing by.

The flowers were beautiful too, but more of those later. I'm just glad I've got some ok, if as ever rather soft looking bird shots.

  5. Thanks all, I'm really really pleased that I got some reasnoable shots. The goldcrest was pure luck!

  6. Great images Si, the one I love was the Goldcrest or the Firecrest.

    1. Think it's a goldcrest Bob, think the back would be a more orange colour at the shoulder if it were a firecrest.

    2. I agree it looks like a goldcrest
