Well, I needed some time to myself after my Mothers death this week, so decided on a woodland wander in the hope of some close ups of Lesser Redpoll and Siskin. I started off at Whitacre Heath which resembled a massive swamp with many fallen trees blocking the way. Getting to the feeding station hide was an adventure in its own right! Eventually, I gave up and headed to Ladywalk Reserve and spent a pleasant hour in the Sainsbury Hide. As you will see from the following images, I failed in my quest! However, I enjoyed my morning and hope you will enjoy the following images.
