Leaving the car at the first carpark we headed for the path down the west side of the reserve. Within 10 yards Goldcrest were tumbling out of the hawthorn hedge. We stood within three feet of them feeding totally unconcerned
You just could not be anything but entranced by them - I mean, just look at it......
A Blackcap was feeding on the elderberries
and a female Redstart was insect catching
There were Robins everywhere, and being watched by about a dozen others this female Red-flanked Bluetail
Small picture but enough to confirm what we were watching. Then this bird below which I don't know what it is so comments welcome.
A very enjoyable visit - thanks birds.
