Willow Warbler

By NigelKiteley
Spent the last two mornings in the great company of Adrian (tomcat) at his local reserve Twywell Hills and Dales. The aim was to find and photograph Green Hairstreaks and Grizzled Skippers, but we couldn't find any. Luckily we took our telephoto lenses and managed to photograph some of the birds instead.

This shot was taken around lunchtime today under pretty harsh lighting, so i'm pretty pleased with how it turned out.

Thanks for looking.

A cracking shot of this beautiful little bird Nigel, the detail and colours in the plumage have been perfectly recorded and I like the thorny perch. I'm glad you managed to survive the Tomcat experience, I had to put up with him last weekend!Wink The green hairstreaks are on the wing at Prestbury Hill and Rodborough Common now. I photographed some late this afternoon at PH with gary_d, there were also a number of orangetips and brimstones around but no skippers or duke of burgundys yet.
