Lot to learn
2013 photos & vids here

The Egrets returned today, just a couple of them with Titch also appearing
Slightly better shot, I took a photo of white sheet of paper (as suggested in book!!)
Altercation, even the cattle had a look
Titch called in - literally - he took a wrong door on his way out of shed, I didn't know and had carried on unpacking my shopping. Went in house and into lounge to look at the laptop to check an order, did that, back out to kitchen to start toast for lunch. In Titch flew from lounge or other room, and was in the house for at least another five mins with me. Thought I would try and get a few pics, don't know when I will get the priviledge again inside, he hasn't come in for six months or more.
No Titch, I agree, the weather out there is atrocious :-)
I had opened the window so out he hopped into the Berberis bush just outside
My cheeky chappie!!
Looks as if even the rain stopped for him!!! That could be my Xmas photo to you all.

In reply to gaynorsl:
gaynorsl said:Thanks Mike, I am always amazed that my little Pani manages to get the photos so well, as for the Egrets, well they have disappeared again, and I never have learnt how to compensate for the white balance though I have a book that just needs reading :-)

Lovely photos again, and a cheeky little chappie is titch, leaving its mates out there in the cold and wet!
I agree, it would make a nice Christmas card picture
Kind regards, Ann
