    Early February birds

    Another walk down to the river with my camera. Tap on an image to see it in its gallery. Along the river were a few little flocks of Long Tailed Tits going from tree to tree and with them several Goldcrest. Three if not more Goldcrest were also in one of the bushes next to […]

    Goldcrest at Denso

    As some of you will know I have a new camera body, a Canon R7, but I still have the Canon 7D MkII. When I go out I usually have my binoculars with me on their neck strap and after a while, binoculars round my neck, camera and long lens over my shoulder, things start […]

    Denso Nature Reserve after Christmas II

    I had another walk around Denso Marston Nature Reserve on Thursday 29th. This time I didn’t spot any Kingfishers which is unusual but after taking a photo of the Crow with its nictitating membrane over over its eye I spotted a Cormorant flying along the river. As usual click on an image to see it […]
