The previous nights disappointment with dipping the Pine Martins was still in our minds, but, as we had already booked the hide at Penny Hedge for the following day, it was a csae of trying to make the best of it by concentrating on different behaviour to take some interesting photos of the common birds that were visiting.

However, the Red Squirrels were still of interest, especially jumping.

The weather was really bright and sunny so high shutter speeds were possible for flight shots, even of small birds. Blackbird


Collared Dove

and even a Great Spotted Woodpecker

after a few hundred shots, most of them unsuitable, it was time to concentrate on behaviour. With so many visitors to the feeders, there was plenty of aggressive action, unfortunately, most of it over so quickly that I missed it but persistence can pay off for the determined!!! Goldfinch v Siskin

Chaffinch v Siskin

Juvenile Greenfinch v Chaffinch

and finally Siskin v Chaffinch

So some different images that made the day worthwhile in the end.

The next day would be the 300 mile long drive from Blairgowry to Frampton, East Yorkshire so no late night for the Pine Martins. Ah well, something to come back for.
