  1. Great woodpecker pics, you did well to get that close. I wonder if the squirrel got stuck in the hole? :)

    1. It was in zoom, Jessica and we were in a hide so it couldn't see us

    1. I was lucky with that one. Mark as it was just taking off as we entered the hide - just time for a quick shot.

  5. Fabulous photos. I love the squirrel with his head in the hole. I'd like to pick your brains now, we're buying Eleanor a new camera for Christmas and were thinking of a DSLR at first, but I think a bridge camera has all the features she'll want without going down the route of buying extra lenses. Am I right in thinking you've got a Panasonic FZ72 and would you recommend it? I know Martyn got a new bridge camera recently too, which do you think is best? You both take brilliant photos so you're a good advertisement for both models. She wants a decent zoom and she likes taking macro photos too. She's not too bothered about the video.

    1. That's a loaded question Jo but we definitely prefer to the SLR as we have a NIkon and when the zoom is added I find it far too heavy and the huge telephoto lens hasn't as 'big' a zoom. I'll email a fuller answer.

  7. Sue, I agree with everyone on your great pic selection here :-)

    Fun shots as the squirrel and woodpecker are it is the face detail of pic two and the pattern detail of the first one that caught my eye earlier this week. I wanted to come back with a comment knowing ID’s here. Hands up… I’m stumped with the first (which I’d love to see visit my garden). Is it a bunting of some kind or is it a finch? The second one – a partridge maybe?

    1. Halfway there Shirley - the first is a male reed bunting and the second is a female pheasant.

      When we were watching the cormorant swimming around under the water or half submerged it almost looked like Nessie photos
