Seems to have been an age since I was able to get down to my local wildlife hide, finally managed to get a few good hours in this afternoon though and what a glorious day to be able to do it, hardly a cloud in the sky.
Didn't get too much out of the ordinary, although these Greenfinches were putting on a smashing show as they fought over the peanut feeders, if only the light had just been that little bit stronger by a few stops, so as to increase the shutter speed and squeeze out just that little bit more detail, oh well beggars can't be chosers I guess.
I also managed to capture a wild fox which wandered in front the hide for a few seconds, first that's ever happened to me down there, if I can find the time I'll try and post that one up tomorrow. Hope everyone's fine who knows me and best regards to everyone else.....Ade
