Coppice update-Saturday 6th March 2010

Arrived there just before daybreak and proceded to erect another rail for placing the "props" on.
The beauty of this one is that I can sit on my fishermans stool.
This rail is OK until noon at the latest, before the light swings round and catchlight is lost.
Started to wrap up when I suddenly spotted what had been before my eyes all of the timeGrin
Another spot where I can use the stool and shoot virtually 180 degrees opposite to the one I erected earlier this morning.In fact it could be OK for a full session.
So, it was back out with the tools, more branch collecting and a quick try out to make sure I had it set up correctly and a tad of selective pruning to ensure a clear background.Wink
It is the clay shoot tomorrow, but it will be over by noon, so I will pop up then for a couple of hours to see if it works OK with the light.
One good sign today was a Goldfinch.
First one spotted in the vicinity, so heres hoping it/they discover the Niger feederTongue
A Chaffy actually braved it to the feeder table too.

Thanks for reading

I'm sure all your station "housekeeping" will pay dividends in time, Adrian.
I placed a niger feeder in the garden two weeks ago - spotted the first (two) Goldfinches on Friday. Since then there have been four visiting. Hopefully get some decent shots in due course. Just takes time.
