I can get quite close to these and am thinking of slopping the 300mm f2.8 to get some flight shots, though this was taken from the shed using the 500mm in between sips of tea and bacon sarnies..yum

The other nice surprise is the Chaffinch, OK very common. However last time we had any in the garden was a couple of winters ago and we had heavy snow which in turn brought in loads to the garden, currently upto 7 at any one time, weirdly all but one is a female.

Won't bore you anymore with common stuff from the garden for now. Hopefully my next post won't be about a messy end for a goat...maybe :-) oh and check out John Finlayson's blog out he's been getting some excellent starling murmaration at his local reserve Titchmarsh, his blog can be found on the list down the side of this blog or here JOHN'S BLOG
