Arundel - briefly but with a Firecrest!!

I popped over to WWT Arundel this morning... but enroute I pulled off the road to take some pics of the Cathedral and Arundel Castle..

 The Castle

The Cathedral

Load of children about at Arundel - it's half term -

Views of the reserve ..

but nonetheless found a group of birders with cameras raised... a Firecrest (there were at least two, possibly three, darting about at great speed.

Only record shots but the first ever pics I've managed of a Firecrest..

A small flock of Goldfinches settled in a blossoming tree

and elsewhere

and also picked up some travel documents for impending holiday... roll on the next few weeks :)

Amazing to get such clear snaps of such a very flitty bird, well, if they are anything like goldcrests. Lovely shot of a goldeneye too!
