Clever Thrush

In the recent cold weather I found a Mistle Thrush using its initiative. It was following a mole around as it tunnelled beneath the frozen ground. It could obviously hear the mole moving as it would hop over the grass with it's head cocked to one side, until it reached the next mound of earth where the mole would then start to push more soil to the surface. The Thrush was taking advantage of the situation by foraging for food in the fresh unfrozen soil.

Nuthatch Poses

The Nuthatch is a very entertaining bird to watch and photograph, it can get into some gravity defying positions that seem impossible, here's a selection from some recent sessions.

Bar-tailed Godwit

A recent trip out in search of a regularly reported Shorelark on the North Wales coast was one of my less productive days, after 4 hours there was no sign of the Lark which was probably hiding in the dunes from the minus 2 degree wind. In fact there wasn't much about at all, just a Bar-tailed Godwit flying past.
