Today I made my first outdoor sortie for a wander around Horton Country Park following the cataract surgery to my left eye on Tuesday. The Surgeon has dramatically improved my distance vision so it was quite an experience to be birding without wearing any spectacles.
A Pied Wagtail in one of the paddocks who couldn't decide whether to sit in the sun or the shade from the fence!
Still good numbers of overwintering Redwing moving between their woodland roosts and feeding spots in the horse paddocks.
I watched any number of Goldcrest flitting through the vegetation in Pond Wood without any chance of a photo but at least this Great Tit was far more obliging.
Every now and then the bird song died away as this Kestrel made a few forays along the woodland edge.
I'm linking to GOOD FENCES with this final image of a Blue Tit perched on one of the dilapidated woven hazel fences.
