Not been out that much since my last post but having filled up with paracetamol (backache) on a couple of mornings this week I went over to the grounds of the NT property at Baddesley Clinton.
If I get there early I have the grounds to myself for at least an hour until the plebs arrive and if it's nice weather it can be very pleasant wandering round trying to get some shots.
I had a losing battle with a couple of Coal Tits but they wouldn't let me get any decent shots.
The Swallows have nearly all gone now but I did get this shot of what I think is a juvenile looking apprehensive about his flight to S Africa.
Managed a shot through a bench of a Green Woodpecker.
Caught this Blue Tit after an early morning bath
The best bird I found was this Chiffchaff hidden deep inside a tree.
There were loads of Nuthatches about but the only shots I managed were of this one feeding upside down.
A Robin like all other Robins was very friendly.
Caught this Wren sunning himself.
Had my usual enjoyable battles with the Goldcrests but I could not manage any keepers.
