A Day Looking For Otters but Nowt Doing

Today I went to a reserve in North Yorkshire where Otters have been seen during the day, as is always the case when you specifically go looking for one species you don't see it. However there were plenty of birds around although difficult to photograph.

A few more Bird pics with new camera.

Fresh from doing the Saturday morning Hillsborough park run (no PB this week) the sun came out late morning so I was keen to try and get some more photos with my new camera. First up were a group of House Sparrows which were feeding on nettle seeds, these seemed quite and was pleased with one particular photo. I also saw a few Fieldfare, Red Grouse, Goldfinch a Sparrowhawk and a few other bits and bobs.

A few pictures from the last week

Just a few photos from my new camera which I am very pleased with so far, its certainly sharper when I crop the photos down. There are a lot of winter thrushes around but early in the season when there are a lot of berries around they are quite nervous. I also found a Angle Shades moth in my porch.
