Anyone who has photographed these little birds will attest I'm sure how quick they are around the tree!! Left here in glorious sunshine the other day to go to a friends feeder station near the Severn Bridge...only to arrive in thick pea soup like if trying to get these wasn't hard enough as it was! Anyway, had a great couple of hours and the fog did eventually clear.

Moff to Gigrin tomorrow but hoping to get some landscape shots in nearby Elan Valley too.

Congrats on getting this fine shot Alan. Treecreepers are notorious for not standing still for more than a split second.
Hope you enjoy Gigrin.

We have a local squirrel that does this walking up trees thing, leads some of the cats a merry dance I'll tell you. Enjoy your trip, sounds good to me.

I saw one today! I was so chuffed - started firing off a few shots, then the little red 'Battery Low' light started. After a few more shots the camera closed down (bum!). In the few seconds it took to change them, the Tree Creeper had gone...................and not one of my images were worth showing! Sad

This is a stunning shot, the colours and details are absolutely spot on. I feel quite jealous!
