Goldcrest at Far Ings 9.11.12.

Spent a few hours walking the entire patch yesterday and today looking for waxwings to no avail. So I settled down sat on the ground on the edge of some thorn bushes waiting for long tailed tits coming past bringing the Goldcrests. Managed just one shot worth keeping which believe me is a good day on this species. Constantly on the move they frustrate me so much, but I love the reward of a shot of one when I get it. Saw a couple of Jays today again but didn't manage a shot. I'm sure Jays have had a good breeding season this year. I've seen far more this last week or so than I have in previous entire winters.
