Finally a post!!

After nearly two weeks of man flu! and some poor weather in the mornings, I got out this morning for an hour and it was a beautiful morning. I didn't see a lot, about a dozen SKYLARK came up from the field, while this years piglets decided to follow me thinking I had their breakfast. FIELDFARE, REDWING, REDPOLL and SISKIN were around in small numbers and a male SPARROWHAWK drifted low over the trees in the lovely early light. The new pond did have 2 MALLARD on it, again the light illuminated the drake wonderfully, I don't think my photo does it justice but it was worth a go. (click for larger image)
Hopefully I'll get a decent walk in at the weekend or another look at Hemsted.

We have lift off!

Man Flu! Ahhhhh! I hope it avoids me this year :-)

Hope you're fully recovered now mate!

I've had the vaccination Alan, worth every penny. Went to Hemstead myself yesterday, saw some Crossbills but a bit distant.

Prachtig zijn de foto's van de Wilde eenden! Ik hoop dat je weer helemaal beter bent en ons weer veel mooie foto's blogt.
vriendelijke groet,
