Hi to everyone,

Firstly I would like to thank you all for your most gracious and welcome comments and votes following yesterdays images of 'Quackers', with a further mention going to CLARECUM (Clare) for presenting me with her User Award.

Keeping up the theme of feathers, yesterday was a rather horrible day on two fronts, one being the weather. However I did manage to capture these image of a Great Tit in my garden through my study window which provided me with much delight.

I hope that you all have a great day.

Regards as always

Nathan

Your study seems to be an excellent 'hide', Nathan. Not looking so good on the weather front today either.

I like the composition in V1- throught the window is never as satisfactory as out in the open
but somtimes it's the only way to capture birds who scamper as soon as you open the door!
