Still quiet at Knypersley

Two weeks since last visit and no real change, 2 Mistle Thrush high in the trees at the far end of the dam but they would not come down to have their photos taken. Same old.

Used 300L f4 as the super long macro lens for this shot

Leighton Moss

After Autumn Watch the place is heaving, I think I will have to leave any more visits till after Xmas or go in the week.
After Xmas I shall be cutting my working week down to 4 days, so I will have more time to visit all of the haunts midweek.
Just a feel for the place below,

The Bearded Tits were surrounded by the football crowd so I gave them a miss, will have to wait untill another time !

Quick wander around Westport before lunch

A bit mucky early, so left it till 11.30 ish, only had one walk around but found the 2 Pigeon's very obliging, the Robin was there of course, with the lady Chaffinch looking down at me.

Doxey Marsh

Had a wander over to Doxey this morning, very damp and grey, when it did clear a bit saw Shoveler [pair] +1 Drake, Teal [pair], plenty of lapwings and a good number of Snipe.

Weather turned even worse so hasty retreat back home.
