A morning at Kielder

The chance of a lift to Kielder for a few hours whilst my son did a small job there was gratefully received. On arrival it was quite misty and very cold with a strong wind blowing straight into the shutters on the  front of the hide, not what I had hoped for.With the light levels just above zero photo's were going to be a no no.
If you like Chaffinches this is the place to be as there seemed to be hundreds of them and very little else,birds seen were Great,Coal and Blue Tit,Chaffinch and Greenfinch,Gs woodpecker and Nuthatch and two Carrion Crows, no Siskins and no Red Squirrels!! I managed a couple of pics just before I was picked up you can see how strong the wind was by the crest on the Chaffinches head .
