On your doorstep.

You don't have to go far if you live in the forest to find a plethera of wildlife.

During the spell of good weather on Sunday I decided to check out one or two locations all within a five mile radius of my house.
Cannop Ponds provided me with these Mute swan shots.

and this shot of a Little Grebe.

The stoneworks end of the larger pool had this Blue tit feeding with others.

New Fancy had a number of Bramblings present.

A drive through Eastbach gave me the chance for this Red legged Partridge.

Of course there were plenty of other birds that I saw such as, Chaffinch, Great Tit, Blackbird, Great spotted woodpecker, Coal tit, Nuthatch, Coot, Moorhen, Mallard duck, Mandarin duck, Robin, Crow, Rook, Collared dove, Pheasant, House Sparrow and Greenfinch.

We are so lucky living in such a beautiful area.
