This morning Sam and I checked out a firecrest hotspot in the new forest and came up trumps with views of 2 after less than 20mins searching. One came very close but in bad light and the 1/15th of a second shutter speed does the bird no justice..
After this we headed to a different spot to see our friendly wood warbler which came to slightly better perches this time, but still not the shot I'm after - a third visit is needed..
Also here a stunning hornet, these really are wonderful things - even though I'm scared of them..and a common frog:In addition to this, I got the results for my biology degree today - a 2.1 which I am relieved and very happy with!
Right, back to the pub.. :-)
