Taken on Friday, again from the "pop-up hide" in the back garden - a Blue Tit trying to stay steady on the Olive Tree I have in a planter.

Many thanks for the C&C's on yesterdays Goldfinch, I really appreciate them all - it is so encouraging.

Have a good day & stay safe whatever the weather brings!

Lou

Hi Lou,
Try setting the perches and the hide so you have a good D-O-F backdrop, rather than the sky

A delightful image Lou, Tomcat will not be content until you have invested in a set of groundsheets from Next or Debenhams to use as your backgrounds!Wink
