Award Shortlist   

Only a Robin could take on a Nuthatch!

By Holmewood
Thank you so much for the votes and comments on my last upload. I was delighted to receive User Awards from Fred (Badgerfred), Peter (Cephus), Jeff (kojack), David (davidgibson), Peter (Mollycat) and Dave (HobbitDave) and to top it all a GEA from Dave (DaveNewbury). Thank you all so much.

I went up to the hide this morning by myself as it was too cold for both dogs. I was so pleased to catch this Robin and Nuthatch in the snow - such a shame I didn't get the whole tail! But I still like it and hope you do. I found it very hard to take photos in the snow but still happy with it.

Stay warm and have a great evening.

All your images are first class Cathy, but this one has the wow factor for me. You have caught the mood of both the birds perfectly, their eye to eye contact is spot on...I bet the Nuthatch won? Pam
