A Great tit Parus major, taken last Sunday at The Coppice

It has been quite an interesting seven days or so at the woods.
When I went to top up the feeders, a week as yesterday, a Badger came ambling out of the hide.

When I was in the hide on Sunday afternoon, a Billy Muntjac trotted by within fifteen feet or so and didn't even realise I was there.

To top it all, when I went up yesterday evening, a Barn owl was hunting in the field oppositeWink, though a fair distance away.

Many thanks to Neil (cantona43), for his generous award, given to yesterday's L-ttTongue

Sounds like you've had a great week, Adrian, despite the weather Wink. Still gale force 8 winds here, but temperature reached a high of 25C at mid-day, and I enjoyed sitting in the sun in a sheltered spot on the balcony Smile. Carol

Must be wonderful to sit in the hide and witness all that wildlife, Ade, but it has not distracted you from capturing yet another fine bird shot.
