Another one from our new haunt. A lovely little Coal Tit this time, very diffcult to capture as they don't stay still for long and we've only ever seen two at the haunt, at any one time. At long last I think I may be getting the hang of capturing birds, mind you it's taken long enough....Far too many have ended up in the recycle bin, as just not good enough. Thanks everyone for looking and your kind comments on my recent uploads....Regards to all....Sue

Classy shot, well done! Got an Eagle Owl here on Saturday, a friend captured a few shots of it before its owner (trying to recapture it) scared it off. Sadly I didn't even get to see it Sad

Envious of everyone taking all these great bird shots in the winter. Not having the right gear is a real frustration sometimes!

The image is perfect, the only thing that bothers me is the text in the photo. I dont know but it draws the eye away from the bird somehow. Besides that an excelent and sharp capture.
