The sun was intermittent and a slight breeze keeping the temperature rather on the cold side. But.. I'm not complaining as it could have been snowing so I am very very pleased it wasn't.
Just a few pics from around the reserve.
Some of the WWT staff were filling up the feeders... about 7 Pheasants were glad to see them
As was this female blackbird... rather affronted at being photographed during breakfast!
For a brief few moments the sun came out... the colours were lovely as a result!
Robins everywhere... I do love Robins
This Robin went from post to post ahead of me as we travelled down the path
Dunnocks were very evident and lots of flicking wings... this one tried to outstare the lens!
Mallards were feeling affectionate despite the cold...
Poor girl... I'm surprised she had any head feathers left!
Male Pheasant... such amazing colours and markings!
A collection bird..took this through chain link fencing so was lucky to get this!
and to end... an obliging Goldfinch perched very near... (full frame picture)
