The first bird I saw was a beautiful Green Woodpecker, one of my favourite birds. It was digging around in the snow looking for seed, insects or what ever it could find.
I found 1 Pintail which showed very well. I caught it when it had just landed (which was very bad) and started waddling around on the ice...
Other wildfowl included these female Shelduck below which were taking advantage of the free and easy-to-get-to drink..
You can't get a much better Robin pose than this (its definitly going on next years Christmas cards!)Ok, its not a bird but I couldn't resist sticking this shot on of a young Red Deer in the snow
