2009 AT CANNOCK

GOLDCREST

We were delighted - when in early 2009 ,we saw for the first time at Cannock, Goldcrest They really are not easy as they never seem to be still for a second. This was taken underneath trees which made the light very poor indeed. However the bird came very close to me, totally unconcerned - and I was able to take about 60 pictures of which only two or three were focussed!! I used the 50d camera together with the 400mm lens
HAWFINCH
I find it very difficult to catch sight of a Hawfinch let alone be able to photograph one. I was delighted at Cannock when this rare visitor turned up, sadly he only ever appeared, like the Goldcrest, under the trees
However, 2 weeks later on a subsequent visit, he came much nearer to where we were sitting and we were able to take a much better pictures, as seen below
