    Fidgety Goldcrest

    I spent several minutes watching this little fellow hoping he'd sit still for a moment but no, he just kept flitting from twig to twig! This is my best effort - shame it wasn't a more attractive background. Shortly after getting this shot he popped up on top of the hedgerow only a couple of feet...

    1500 and Counting

    I thought I would pick out a nice one for picture number 1500 - it doesn't seem long ago I was ipcking one for number 1000. Bird Forum is fantastic. In two years birding and two years of BF I have made lots of great friends. Thanks for all the kind and constructive comments made on my pictures...

    Hang On

    Yesterday morning we had -14 C,just 300 miles north of Gothenburg they had a staggering -37. Why am i telling you this. The Goldcrest can stand temp. -19 C, any colder than that and the entire population could be wiped out. Luckily most of our Goldcrests migrate south and by next spring they...

    These have got to be one of the hardest birds to capture - they just don't want to play ball. Got this one out of my mobile hide (car) as it was too cold to get out and walk today.
