Horley Scout Camp :: 13 April 2013

Another outing to see if I could catch the crossbills, but this time success! Common CrossbillAnother first. Quite a decent flock too, although as they came down onto the hay bales beneath the trees, a car came along and scared most of them away. With grey skies promising rain, it was difficult to get behind to get other than a silhouette shot, so no classic today. A recored shot at least.

As I had been dropped off by the wife I also had some time to walk over the back of the woods - a nice stroll. Sightings (16) included: robin, mistle thrush, wren, woodpigeon, long tailed tit, blue tit, chaffinch, great spotted woodpecker, carrion crow, crossbill, magpie, great tit, blackbird, dunnock, buzzard and kestrel.
