Visitors to my back garden have only just started to show up again this last week the previous few months have been very disappointing with hardly any birds showing except for my arch enemies the pair of Woodpigeon. Here are a few shots of some of the birds that have returned the best so far being a pair of Coal Tits and a lone Long-tailed Tit.

I did pop over to my local patch just the once last week but with Autumn now settling in it's not such an attractive place for this fair weather birder. Mind you a decent bird showing up would change things. All I managed was a few shots of one of my old friends.

The sun was shining last Wednesday morning so I popped over to what is my local patch these days the grounds of the NT property at Baddesley Clinton. 

It was the first time this Autumn that I had been cold when out and about with the camera but at least it was sunny.As usual it was hard to find any birds to point the camera at but I did spot a Pied Wagtail on the roof of the main house.

In the trees and bushes alongside the lake I had a battle royal with my good friends the Goldcrests. There was lots of swearing and shouting as the little devils disappeared  just as I got them into focus.On occasions they were only a few feet away.Great fun. Here are a few shots of my better efforts.
