A bit dark and cold but plenty of fun was to be had.

Shame I couldn't get a good shot of the brown paper bag but with so many bloody twitchers pointing massive lenses and scopes at it I didn't stand a chance :lol: I'll let Hoppy explain just what the hell I'm on about

What no shot of the rare and illusive Bittern (paper bag)?

Love the Long Tailed Tit shots, didn't realize you had only seen them once before...

We spent the afternoon in a hide at our local reserve. When we got there it was nice and quiet but later in the afternoon it became Twitcher City!!! And the hide started ringing with enthusiastic calls of "I See It" and "Where?" and the replys of "Third Horizontal Reed Stem On The Right, Just By the Small Dark Patch". Oh yeah easy to spot, on an island 200 yards away covered in bloody reeds!!!!:er: In the seconds of quiet while people were trying to find said patch you could hear an Otter fancier say "Nah its a bloody paper bag!!!":lol:







Ho Hum... I guess you had to be there...

Beautiful set of birdie pics, LP. Love how you compose them, and of course they are always so wonderfully sharp.

Great set of pics again :thumbup: :)
Those longtailed tits are groovy looking birds. People say they are in Holland too, never saw one though.
