Wednesday 30th January

As Ian said in his blog the weather is not good for capturing good action shots, light is poor and the strong winds don’t help. With the snow melt the wet areas have grown and the pond levels are even higher, not much time before the first birds start to breed so we hope there is a dry spell on it’s way.
Going through the videos from last year, found two to lighten up the day, the first is of a Tufted duck stealing food right from under the beaks of other much larger birds. The second is of a male Cuckoo calling, the shot is not very good but it brings back memories of a glorious spring day, shortly after the male was joined by it’s mate.
