The 'Mother' of Record Shots!

Two new records for the patch at East Holywell yesterday and today.

Yesterday I heard a song I wasn't familiar with - sounded just like this. I was heading out on a bike ride towards Holywell Dene, and just past the cattery the mystery song had me slam on the breaks. I reached for my binoculars and there it was, a Marsh Tit!

And today, a walk down to Holywell Dene was rewarded with two Brambling landing high in the beech trees before flying North. Managed to get the 'mother' of all record shots :)
