DESERT WHEATEAR

30-12-2017 Whitby

The very popular, tame and long staying bird was a must when I was staying over in Scarborough after a Pantomime (Jack and the Beanstalk) with family. A day trip to Whitby followed with me absconding for the first hour!!
































































HAWFINCH

Broomhill Flash - 24-12-2017

I got there just before dawn and within 15 minutes the bird had arrived into the trees around the carpark. It arrived with a Greenfinch and a Chaffinch. Very poor light but managed a few softish shots as it was feeding in the trees.







































PARROT CROSSBILL

18/12/2017 Howden Res

An early start to be at the top of the track (normal drinking puddles) for first light. Very icy on the approach roads but worth the effort. I was sat down in the snow and a group of 12 birds showed twice, the second time coming down through the trees to drink. No shots drinking as the puddle was in shadow.
