Had a lovely day yesterday at WWT Arundel in the company of Ina and Graham (Gezina and Gray-Ina). Glorious weather but quiet on the more "exotic" wildlife front. We had a lot of fun capturing birds in flight, the feral pigeons providing good sport, as they homed in on the seed being scattered for the ducks - not as easy as Ina makes it look ! Wink

My thanks to you all for your great response to yesterday's Great Tit upload - always very much appreciated Smile

A shot to be proud of. Well framed well taken. Cameras take photos you have taken a picture. Common birds are often overlooked.

Beautiful shot, Sylvia, esp. managing that full frontal capture, showing all the fine detail on the underside.

Brilliant timing Sylvia to catch him coming in to land. I don't know what you mean about "exotic" wildlife unless of course you are referring to the epzers'!Wink

Hi Ed
Well, I suppose Epzers might be included in that - LOL! By "exotic" I really meant things like Goldcrests and Water Voles, being exotic by comparison with the very common and despised Feral Pigeon Wink
