The first Long-tailed tit Aegithalos caudatus of the current season from The Coppice
I was up there and raring to go by 9.00am, but by 11.00am, I was ready to throw the towel in
The local forecast of sunny periods/white cloud, materialised into clear blue skies and very harsh sunlight.

Anyway, with a few minor adjustments, which put the background into shade. I decided to stick it out.
Good job I did, or I would have missed this beauty
Only just managed to fit him/her in the frame - Top RHC focal point
In fact, owt decent came between 11.15'ish & 2.30pm, when the sun was slowly drifting around to a South-westerly position
