I took a gamble this morning, that the fair weather clay shooters, wouldn't turn out for their shoot.Smile
They didn't, which gave me the opportunity to try out the alterations, that I carried out yesterday at The Coppice

The short journey, took me over half an hour, due to the poor road conditions, but so pleased that I did.
I reckon I had one of the best mornings there, for a very long timeTongue

This Coal tit Periparus ater, was one of many keepers.
No quips about Next, pleaseSad - the background is a snow covered woodland riseWink

Big thanks to Mossy, for instilling the idea about low level shooting, in my head - methinks it has paid off mateGrin

Though I didn't nail 'em, now that the perch table, is only about a foot above ground level, the Chaffies & Dunnocks were showing some interestSmile

Its taken me years of studying there habits Adrian and so glad it paid off for you. This is superb, not only a quick bird and so hard to capture as they are straight in and out, but the make-up of perch and bird go so well together.

Superb capture

The snow does make for a different b/g to the usual and it does show off the bird so well.
