Gosh what a lovely day!
Isn't it typical everyday this week I've been woken by the alarm today? Nope I woke up at 4 snoozed for an hour and that was it!
I popped to the shops to get Shane the Dog's birthday presents and then where to? I haven't been to the forest for a while.....
I decided to have a change of tack and left the telephoto behind and stuck the wide angle on.
Quite a few birds woodland about.
There were at 5 grebes on the lake and one was definitely a juvenile. You can tell it is getting wintery as the lake had Pochards on it! A sure sign.
As I walked past the decoy pond a tit flock descended that had Nuthatches in it (there were a few about) and a Marsh Tit AND a Kingfisher flashed across the pond!
As I stood by the lake two Great Crested Grebe swum by close in, almost taunting my lack of telephoto, I went for a cup of tea and a suasage sandwich!
I got to see my first Fieldfare of "the season" and the Forest looked lovely in the Autumn sun.
