A Great tit Parus major. from Friday's session at The Coppice
Just about held the cheeksSmile

Even when I left home this morning, the forecast was for white cloudGrin
By the time I had set up and sorted a few things out, the cloud rolled away and the blue sky appearedSad

Spent most of the morning, moving things around, to try and avoid the shadows. I even had the saw out and cut down
some of the offending low branches.
Don't think I came away with more than three good shots, which was a pity, because the L-tt's were out in force,
but all the shots were marred by damn shadows.

At least the place is opened up more nowWink, in readiness for next Saturday

A fine shot of this lovely little great tit, the detail, colours and clarity in the plumage are first class. I can't believe that you are moaning when we have a rare day when the sun shines, there is just no pleasing you sometimes!

Great shot.
So you had a gardening day then, Adrian.
Every possibility of some white stuff by next weekend
for you and me, should make for some good clicks.

No blue sky here today.......just a uniform grey, so no outdoor images attempted.
Another fine capture from the Coppice, Adrian, every bit up to your customary high standard.

Another good one. Sounds as though you had far better weather than us. It snowed on and off all day.
