Well on this trip the weather was looking much better than the last one , we had bright but cloudy skies at first and the sun came out for most of the afternoon:)
I got there about 10 minutes before Gillian, which was fairly good. There were already about 30 Coal ,blue and Great tits in the tree to our left! Amazing to see :)
So where do i start. The most numerous species at first where the Great tits, loads of them flying back and forth from the tree and the feeder area.
and a beautiful Coal tit , as you can see no sun yet!
And one of our favourite birds A Poppit :) (long tailed tit )
Gillian's moss covered feeder soon attracted the attention of a male Bullfich, they really are beautiful looking birds!
With all the activity it was hard to decide what to shoot, but i got really lucky when a Willow tit, quite a rare little bird momentarily dropped down right in front of me , and i managed to get 3 really good shots, Gill however wasn't as lucky and her shots were slightly oof :((( not happy!
Here are the rest of the shots taken at grass level :)
And every ones favourite bird the Robin :)
Blue Tit perching nicely :)
I then noticed a small herd of Deer walking single file down the track right in front of us!!! what a great sight to see, i turned around to tell Gill in case she missed seeing them, and spotted 3 more walking behind us! i just said " Dear, there is a Deer behind you" So Funny :)
I had set up a large log , a Robin found this quite appealing and sat for ages :))))
The afternoon session will be in part 2 :)
