Returning home from a family weekend camping in the New Forest (punctuated by the Arctic Warbler twitch - see post for 11 Sept) it seemed rude not to pop into Blashford Lakes on the way. Waiting for a sleeping bairn to stir in the car provided an opportunity to photograph whatever chose to visit the feeders in the car park.
This Blue Tit (bottom) posed nicely in nearby bushes, but the Nuthatch (top) remained well hidden unless actually on the feeders themselves. Attempted some flight shots which made me appreciate the skill of the pros who manage to capture anything of small birds in flight!
