Last Forest visit for the year.

I dragged myself out of bed this morning and headed to Hatfield Forest for the last time this year.

Woodland birds seen included Green and Great Spotted Woodpeckers, Nuthatch, Marsh Tit and Fieldfare. The partially frozen lake had the usual Mallards, Coots, Moorhen, Canada Geese, Black Headed Gulls and a pair of Great Crested Grebes (I presume one of the breeding pairs). These were joined by Tufties, Gadwall, Shoveller, Pochard and Teal. Duck variety is always greater in winter.

I do like the first Mallard pic.

Yep, nice photos. As were yesterday's. I am really sick that you keep getting the Long-tailed Tits to keep still long enough for you to get a photo!

I agree, the first picture is fabulous. They are all wonderful. You do get to see some great birds.

I agree also - good pic of the female mallard and like the composition of the 2nd LTT picture.

So typical of you...say I dont do photography.... then you get a camera and the next thing you are doing it better than most of us...drat you!

Seriously those LTT pics are a study. I had two in my tree and could I get any in focus...twig this twig that!
