After approximately half an hour I managed to get near enough with my 300mm without being spotted only to almost...

  • Media: Young Blackbird v Young Thrush

    This is the only time I've ever seen a thrush in our water bath, and this youngster wasn't going to let a young blackbird interrupt its ablutions! Sadly taken at the limit of my camera's zoom so probably not good enough quality for the calendar, but worth sharing all the same.
