Moving slowly and as quietly as we could we were rewarded:-
Moving through the forest we had a brief glimpse of a weasel plus the usual woodland suspects of wren and robin, a short walk and we returned to the car for a warm up and a coffee. Taking a different path on our return to the wood paid immediate dividends, a small flock and feeding too. Hard to photograph in the treetops but what a joyous song to behold.
A little frustrated at the lack of clear shots but woodland photography is never easy! We will return.
A text from my old school mate lead us over to Barden, kite, buzzard and kestrel had all been seen from the raptor view point. A buzzard flew close overhead while we there chatting, my camera was in the car:-(( We took a short walk upstream beside the Wharfe, a dipper was in clear sight, across a wide river the photo could be better.
Walking for the day is done, twilight beckons and all of a sudden a mighty racket from some trees on the far bank of the river Wharfe. Fieldfares and starlings, a strange mixture!
What a wonderful day! Tomorrow ...............weather depending, spuds to get ready for chitting and a kingfisher hunt.
