To be honest at this point I thought a good landscape shot might be all I got today but a little later some mallards were posing nicely-
Moorhens are always evident around here, not the easiest bird to photograph especially in poor light as they rarely remain still.
Having the binoculars close to hand, or should that be eyes? I spotted a kingfisher as I got near Silsden, just a hint of blue and a swift low flight and no chance of a photograph but I know where to watch for it in future.
A few blue tits were feeding on the far bank, a wren and robin appeared almost at my side turning the camera towards the had the usual effect and they disappeared well before I had the chance to focus.
Almost back in town I heard the strange noise of a starling,
Bad light and not a great pic, but hearing the noisy starling chirping down the chimney made me smile.
