Great to get into the hide today and just loved the wonderful autumnal tones. Very happy to capture this Jay cowering as a Jackdaw flew past.These are one of my favourites although really tough to photograph ( the slightest twitch of the lens or over noisy camera and they are off).

As ever thanks for taking a look and for your attention on previous uploads.

A terrific shot of this shy and often elusive bird, the detail and colours in the plumage are immaculate

Superbly detailed capture, David - lovely plumage tones and patterning and fine eye. Beautiful luminous light and softly blurred bg colours.
