Out again today with the new camera and pushing some newly found buttons ! When the novelty of the really mad 50 X zoom subsides a little I can get down to taking some proper photos.

A nice count of Wigeon, a good few Lapwing, a Buzzard, Fieldfare and Redwing plus a Kingfisher, it was flying, so no photo there  ‘so plenty to point the camera at !

 

Bennerley. 90 Wigeon, 70 Lapwing. 2 Grey Heron, 3 Cormorant, 80 Black-headed gull, 3 Common Gull, 2 Grey Partridge, Buzzard, 2 Mistle Thrush, 3 Greenfinch. Chat Corner. 70 Field Fare, 25 Redwing, Meadow Pipit. Tathams Pond. Kingfisher, 40 Goldfinch.
