Winter Treats

Having not been out recently, I have looked back at some shots I took around the same period last year. I came across some Brambling and Siskins up at Dovestone Reservoir. Feeders are put out and topped up all year by the RSPB, so you are usually guaranteed to see something around them.
The good thing about the winter conditions is that the birds will quite often come to you if you are patient enough.

  18. Your robin is so different from ours. That is one cute bird! But I liked seeing all of them. Well, I guess someone has to get up early to show us night owls what we're missing. :)
