Goldcrest Far Ings 13.10.12.

First decent shots of the autum. I must be mad to keep chasing this species, it's one that's sure to make you want to to throw your camera as far as you can at times. It's so difficult to pin down shots of this species. Nice to get some today, albeit ISO 1000 due to the lack of light in the woods at the moment. That will improve once the leaves fall.

Common Kingfisher Far Ings 8.10.12.

A trip out today between more pressing chores to see if I could catch sight of a kingfisher reported yesterday at Ness lake was not wasted. The bird showed twice and fished in the hour or so I stayed. A sparrowhawk spotted at the other side of the lake did come to try to take the rather noisy Kingfisher as it fished from the posts infront of the hide. Glad that didn't happen as it's the first Kingfisher seen here in a few months.
