Birchwood Birds

At last some proper winter weather, after 50 days of rain and grotty weather a lovely crisp frosty winter morning, but unfortunately a working day, but took a morning break to visit the nature reserve at work, and the colder weather meant all the local finches and tits were very active, although in my short visit I didnt see anything more interesting, the shadow from the neighbouring office building meant it was difficult to achieve high enough speeds to get really crisp photos, but got some nice shots nonetheless.

Even by mid morning the over grown field behind the reserve is still white with frost.
