Coppice update-24th Feb

I went to have my shoulder X-rayed this morning and the radiologist stated that nothing appeared obviously wrong to him, so that is a tad of good newsSmile
Just have to wait to hear what my GP has to say in about a weeks time

So having got the hospital appointment out of the way, what better way to pass a few hours than a visit to The Coppice
Good job too!...The feeders, apart from the Niger seed, were virtually empty

Unfortunately the snow is still lying on the fields, so I reverted to backshooting into the woodland.
A few played ball, but as always you spot something that could do with improvingSmile
Relocated a couple of the feeders and now know the ideal spot to place a perch for the LTT's before they drop on to the feeders. That will have to happen at the weekend now.
See near miss image belowSad

Any of the shots I did achieve were all taken without hardly any cover, apart from a few ivy laden branches that I was shooting over.
All the birds did, was to make a slight detour around me.
I am hoping that they become used to my presence and virtually ignore me.

Anyway enough for now.

Thanks for taking the time to read

I love the LTT's and you are going to have some super images if this is a near miss..... TongueTongueTongue

Good to hear your xray is clear - hope it improves soon

No news here, off to finish watching yellowstone well worth a view, the photography is top quality.... what a dream of a place

Hi Adrian
I think you will soon find that the birds will be even coming for the food while you stand close, they soon get used to the hand that feeds. Have to ask, are you putting down loose food hidden in perches when you are photographing and removing the hanging feeders.
