…weather wise, especially Saturday which was a blue sky all day! I decided Friday evening having seen the weather forecast to have an early start Saturday morning and head of to Frensham Little Pond to do some bird photography, the ‘early start’ didn’t happen (stayed up late watching Red nose prog!) so left at 9am instead of the planned 6:30am.

Arrived on site at 10am and was immediatly struck by how much more beautiful the Little Pond is compared with the Great Pond and the Great Pond is really nice, I took a couple of Landscapes

As for the birds, on the water I spotted the expected Mallards, Swans and Coots along with 3 Great Crested Grebes of which 2 where engaging in their amazing courtship, a Cormorant sitting patiently on a post (I assume looking for a meal) and a few Black Headed gulls.

 In the surrounding area of woods and heathland I spotted Blue, Great, Long Tailed and Coal tits a couple of Buzzards circling over head and a first for me since rediscovering my birding hobby a male & female Siskin (the Siskin is a part of the finch family) so all in all a great day spotting! I will definately being going back.
