Godwits Galore !

A message from Tim Cleeves alerting me about the Black-Tailed Godwits on Holywell Pond saw me heading down with the camera,gloves,large coat with hood ,entering the public hide my assumption was correct (it was Baltic)the cold wind blowing straight into the hide the good news was the Godwits were still there 29 in all having a wash and brush up and all looking rather smart.

Nice surprise

I was greeted to a nice surprise this morning as I looked out of the back bedroom window onto the neighbouring horse field with a nice pair of Red-Legged Partridges pecking away in the short grass,a closer look through the bins caught site of three Roe deer in the bottom of the same field so a trip downstairs for the camera etc was the next move.I was too slow for the best shot of the deer as it jumped the fence (drat) here's a couple of pics.
