Yesterday started with a total drenching; fortunately, the group who had turned up to learn about woodland bird photography were a pragmatic group and made the most of it. The weather improved as the day progressed and in the end we had some good light and some good bird behaviour topped when the sparrowhawk made a pass and then perched on top of one of the feeders just 4m from people in the hide!
The weather today, by contrast was beautiful though a little colder than it has been over the past couple of weeks. I took this image of one of the many fly-agaric fungus that has emerged outside the bird hides.
While I was having my lunch and watching all the birds at the feeders I was again treated to a close fly-by from the stunning male sparrowhawk; what a bird!
