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 inSad
The local forecast of sunny periods/white cloud, materialised into clear blue skies and very harsh sunlight.
Shadows and bright bits bouncing about all over the place.

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 beautyWink
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

Sorry, seem to have missed this yesterday and so glad I looked back today. Wonderfully detailed image of this little charmer. We've been delighted to have quite a number attended the feeding stations in the garden over the past week when the weather was dire.
