Southey feeders

It was back to Southey Woods once more this morning (Sunday 15.1.06) for another go at the Crossbills. They turned up just as I was going, but in the meantime Kevin Durose, Will Bowell and I relieved our photographic urges with a game of single digiscope versus two DSLRs. A couple regularly put out seed for the small birds (and the odd Jay and Great Spotted Woodpecker) and it is very good for Marsh Tits. It was very gloomy, but once more some shots at 1/30s and 1/40s show that photos are possible in gloom. Shots around seed are never the prettiest, but still...
