Re: Bluebells

One final image.

If time and bluebells permit, next time I'll try and get some decent light and take a tripod.

Regards,

Tom

Re: Bluebells

Nice pictures Frank and Mike. Shame that I couldn't make it on the day. To make up for it I went to Kingswood in Sanderstead this afternoon to check out the bluebells there. Unlike Monday, the light was very flat but there are lots of bluebells and fallen trees to occupy those who cannot travel far....

The weather may not have been great but if you wait long enough the sun always shines on the righteous.

Re: Westerham Walkabout - 12 April

Thank you Mike for organising the walkabout. Shame about the weather but there is always next time. Hopefully between us all we can arrange some more explorations.

Re: Goldcrest

Hi Tina, Just out of boredom I've been logging the species of birds landing in the garden for the past two weeks. I've seen not less than 13 and no more than 18 species a day but certainly not any siskins or redpolls. As you said, it is hard to get a great picture of the goldcrest as they only stay ...

Re: Goldcrest

Hi Tina,
I've never seen one before so I'll certainly keep a lookout next time I'm at Shirley Hills. In watching to see if it came back, which it has for the past 5 days, I've been introduced to redwings and blackcaps, two other birds I hadn't recognised before.
Regards,
Tom

Goldcrest

Lockdown does have some plus sides. While looking up at the top of my birch tree I saw a strange bird. Off to the magic RSPB book and to my surprise it was a Goldcrest, the smallest bird in Europe. Having got a few shots of its back underside and anything but what I wanted it then proceeded to walk ...

Re: Westerham Walkabout - 12 April

Hi Mike, Covid and weather permitting whilst there might not be that much to photograph it is an ideal opportunity for a few members to meet up and to hopefully look towards arranging some activities later this season. Perhaps for those who have not had the opportunity to do much photography or like...
