Bit of a photography drought
Never one for an easy option I decided to try for another small and tricky subject this morning, the Goldcrest. I went out to check on a pair of nesting Kingfishers I have been watching, they are still incubating eggs at present. After watching for an hour I went looking for the Goldcrests, this time I was travelling light with only a 300mm f/4 lens and 1.4tc if I needed it. The next few hours were as frustrating as the Dartfords and whilst I did get a few opportunities to point my lens at them once again shots were hard to attain. Anyone who has tried to photograph these little birds will know they rarely stay still for a second and are usually in amongst trees or Ivy making things even harder. This one was picking cobwebs off the barbed wire for nest building.
