My second new photo opportunity came from a very active Wren which I have seen here before but this was the first time that it spent long enough to achieve the portrait image below.
There was no sight or sound of our usually busy and often noisy Little Grebes out on the water but there was a lone Cormorant fishing and I wondered was there a connection or a threat by the Cormorant's presence to the Little Grebes, Checking along the margins I found the answer in a very quiet Little grebe hiding within the reeds
As soon as the Cormorant had finished fishing and departed the grebes were back on the case and soon catching plenty of Sticklebacks again
Other resident birds were showing as usual and it was nice to see a Goldfinch feeding on Pussy Willow instead of sunflower hearts
Of which the Reed Bunting below seems to have had more than his share
This image of the male Great Spotted Woodpecker was taken as it was stretching its neck to check out the unappreciated arrival of the above Jay
