A trip to the Forest

Another dull grey cold day. I had intended going further afield but it seemed a waste of petrol so I went to the Forest.

Lots of common birds about saw quite a few Woodpeckers (Green and Great Spot), lots of Blue Tits (mostly in twos!), loads of Chaffinches a long tail tit and goldfinch flock. Still plenty of Redwings.

The lake had Mallards, Gadwall, Greylags, Teal, Pochard, Tufties and a lovely Great Crested Grebe coming into breeding plumage.

My highlight bird was a Nuthatch. It was drumming away and it looked so pretty!

As I headed back to the car flakes of snow fell but it amounted to nothing.

No bird photos but....

Love those photo's Pete. Just my opinion though, justice to them would have been B/W as your last one, more so too that 1st photo.

Just love that old tree "stump". All great pictures!!

The more results I see of Panny the more...... sigh..

and, as Paul says, the first pic I'm sure would lend itself to B&W!!
