A couple of nice mornings

Once again not loads to report but it was great to see the sun and again hear the birds in full voice. Yesterdays highlights were hearing the LESSER SPOTTED WOODPECKER and finally working out what the thudding noise was I keep hearing down by the lake! It sounded like a Rabbit thumping the ground but was going on to long, peering through the trees into the field, I found the source a GREEN WOODPECKER making a mess of the beehives, tapping away and resonating in the little valley.
Today again the birds weren't spectacular although again a CORN BUNTING was definitely not to be sniffed at a really good bird here. There was a small flock of gulls mainly Common and a nice flock of 22 MEADOW PIPITS. The light was great this morning and lent itself to a few pics.

Alan, those shots of the trees are incredible!! Nicely done Maestro! Best part about birding is the epic landscape scenery!

Piekne ptaki i ich zdjęcia. Równie śliczne są zdjęcia z zamglonym widokiem słońca. Pozdrawiam.
Beautiful birds and photos. Equally beautiful are the pictures of misty views of the sun. Yours.

Hi Alan,
I love birds and birds but in this series, I am totally fallen for picture 2 and 3. What a wonderful beautiful plates. The trees in the fog and then a beautiful light. Really thick compliments.
