Shirlett - Crossbills!

A middle of the day session and whilst there were no photographic rewards, a couple of Whooper Swans, distant on the usual field before the Riverside Inn.....



......were totally eclipsed by a mobile flock of about 25 Crossbills at Shirlett! Here's 5 of them...



It's one of those things, first they were above me in a tall tree (effectively out of view) apart from this female...



Then with rain starting to fall, a few males landed in some smaller shrubs. OMG - what I would have given for some GOOD LIGHT right now!!!







You can't have it all :-( As quickly as they came, they were gone.....
