Another from the archives. This capture is nowhere close to the quality of recent Blue Tit uploads from the elite of EPZ, like Terry, Paul, Steve, Nigel, Tom, Quest and Mossy, to name but a few. But it's my effort, handheld and no hide or feeding station. I have promised myself a day off from everything, Friday, and get out with the camera, but haven't decided where to go yet. It has been over 3 months since I last had a day out, so fingers crossed the weather is good to me.
I live on the south coast close to Worthing and generally go to Arundel, Pulborough or Woods Mill, so if anybody's around and wants to meet up, send me a message and perhaps we can arrange something.
Many thanks for all the C&C's, votes and especially to Martin for his Award on my Wagtail. All are very much appreciated and coverted.
Best wishes,
Steve.

Some lovely colour and a great pose. Don't know how you managed this given hand held and no hide, but impressed.

Nice shot - thought I recognised the perch - I used to travel down to Lancing to work regularly and have also visited the wetlands several times. Woods Mill sounds interesting. I shall have to investigate further
