I had a good four hour session at The Coppice, this morning.
Light sleet or snow was falling the whole time, but there was plenty of white cloud about, which resulted in some decent light for a changeSmile

Also filled an 8Gb card, which is most unusual for me these days. Probably took about three times the amount of images, than I normally do.

Came away frozen, but with loads of keepersWink
Missed the Nutties, as they came in the once, while I was taking a phone callSad

Anyway, this Long-tailed tit Aegithalos caudatus, was well worth the numb fingersTongue


Many thanks to Heather (Mrsbass), for her award, given to yesterday's DunnockTongue

Catch up with things later. Off to bed for some ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ'sGrin

8Gb all in one morning.......that will keep you processing for half an hour or soWinkWink.
I don't think I have ever captured more than about 200Mb in one day.
Great when you come back with work like this though, cold hands or not.
