Local to Leicester

Today started great, the sun was out and Adam and myself had a few good hours spent locally at Ickleford Common....Fieldfares were numbering over 100 and it was great to finally see a large amount of them so close to home!

Another photogenic Robin

More Fieldfares....

...and a Redwing thrown in for good measure!

Black Squirrel

Great Spotted Woodpecker

After dropping Adam off at work i then drove up to Leicestershire and Cossington Meadows, here are a few highlights....

Barn Owl

Nice male Bullfinch who kept me company whilst i sheltered from the rain
The day did end on a real high with my first ever sighting of a Short Eared Owl...unfortunately it was drizzling and getting dark and was impossible to get a decent photo of it but i'll be back hopefully to get some decent pics!
