My birding years seem to have an over-riding theme, a perception of a pattern, or even just a continuing feeling of something. Last year, the first three months saw me ticking oystercatchers everywhere- I literally couldn't avoid them. I thought then that that either be my overiding memories, or else just the undercurrent.

Nutcrackers are not very rare but for some reason there aren't very many photos of these birds. Perhaps the areas where they live are too distant. Well, not for me.

Nutcrackers can be seen and photographed in Bulgaria just outside my home town.Today I decided to try photographing them.

Initially I wanted something different. A unique photo that you don't see. Rather motivated I woke up at 6 a.m. and sneaked out of the bed to arrive at first light at the Nutcracker...
