Icy morning at the Academy Pools, Sunderland.
This one approached close to the pier at Roker. Must make the effort to try and snap a summer plumage bird. (Trip to Scotland necessary.)
These have moved back to the coastal parks in small numbers. Two large flocks of Fieldfare were around Widdrington Village yesterday.
Still plenty of common birds to keep my photo challenge going.
Male and Female flowers. This was the only non-bird photo in my challenge. Couldn't resist it. So easily overlooked.
Sparrowhawk with Starling. Amazingly this one escaped. This was at Newbiggin.
Firecrest (above) Goldcrest (below)
Yes on my third attempt, i was treated to 5 minutes of fast and furious feeding by the Firecrest. It then disappear into the undergrowth and didn't reappear.
Didn't think I would get any decent photos as it was whizzing around the bushes, very close.
Then I looked back and I found these two pics and I'm very happy with them.
