Not a day for photography thats a fact. However a day to look forward. To look forward to whats just around the corner.
It wont be long till talk is of Redstart and Pied flycatcher in the forest. Then Spotted Flycatcher, and of course in amongst them are all the Warblers. Already there has been a reported sighting of a Wheatear in the Forest near Speech House.
Chins up!, Spirits raised! But even though its not been great weather this weekend so far, there is always one thing to bring a smile to my face when driving through the Forest at the moment.
Despite all the ongoing arguments about the rights and wrongs of having sheep loose in the Forest, I defy anyone not to smile when they see these little beauties. Makes one glad to be alive.

Bob keeps an excellent site. He has some great pictures thereon.
Check out his Kestrel and Long Tailed Tit pic's amongst the others, they are very good.

Then a trip to the RSPB reserve at Nagshead gave my the opportunity for this chance photo.
May not be the best quality but a lovely gimmicky shot.
The opportunity to take more did not produce itself.
Earlier in the day a trip to the feeders at Cannop produced one or two nice shots.
A nice shot of this Blackbird
