Black-throated Thrush at Grimsby

a Lincolnshire first -- dull light and bird not that close the usual excuses -- I am a sucker for a nice gnarled and moss covered tree bough though 



























Kestrel

a close male with a different backdrop but I missed the best shots as I had just put my camera away

female taking off from River Ancholme late afternoon;

the assassin

waiting in our neighbour's tree for the next Collared Dove! Taken through double glazed windows at high ISO --

another 2cy male Hen Harrier

Teal in flight

My resolution for 2020 is to take less images that need deleting immediately -- we will see how it works out!
