Song Thrush

On a very cold morning I found this Song Thrush during my walk, it was searching around amongst the leaves for food.
It is always good to find this lovely bird and take a few shots.

These shots of the Redpoll are not very good, but they are the only ones I have seen this Winter so far so needed to record them.

Staring at the Ice

Just caught this Black-headed Gull staring at the ice covering the water that he would normally be swimming and searching for food on. 
 He is probably thinking, 'Can my day get any worse.'

Snow Flurries and Robins

Todays post is mostly about snow flurries and Robins.
When I started out on the walk the temperature was around 2° celsius and near the edge of the three lakes it was more like 0° celsius and it never improved all the time I was out.

The first Robin I had to shoot through the hedgerow, it was sitting nicely in the sunlight.

It moved along the other side of the hedge and I was able to get another shot.

In the image below it looks a nice enough day, but there was a really cold Northerly wind blowing and the clouds in the distance looked suspiciously like snow clouds to me.

The usually groups of Mallards were flying around.

Yes, that definitely looks like snow to me.

Sure enough it did start to snow, but it didn't pitch or last very long, so unfortunately no snow scenes to shoot.

Into the Sunlight

My latest 'Single Image' post. 
I was fortunate that this Robin turned his head just as the sun came through the trees.
