November 14th and 15th

I put the title as both days but they were pretty much the same! Very misty starts indeed, this morning I did have about 10 minutes of better light before heading to work. On the bird front there were some more nice close views of GOLDCREST and yesterday 2 GREEN WOODPECKERS posed in the mist just visible in a small pear tree. I think I'll let the pictures do the talking with a few from this morning then a couple of photos taken while I was on lunch at work today, when the light was better.
These were about 20 yards in front of me, they are Pheasants, by the way!!

So I took a photo of something closer!

The Sun was on it's way

About as good as it got!
I actually manged to get to the car and back before it flew off :-)

It did eventually go though!

I really love the 'Sun is on it's way' shot - very mystical and lovely tones. It really works. Belting Kestrel in flight too.

Hi Warren, thanks, this Kestrel has been using the same perch for years, it was nice to have a go at getting a picture of it.

Hi Greenie, thanks, I think there is a slight difference between the 2 pics but you have to look closely :-)

Hi Alan,thank you, the light helped a lot.

Hi Christian, it was a struggle for the sun to get going!!

Hi Ramon, thank you for your comment, I'm glad you like the Sun picture.

Hi Mike, thanks, any half decent pictures are a real treat for me as they are few and far between :-)
