The light was awful today, and the rain was light but more or less constant. Despite the gloom, I stopped off at Seven Sisters. A little egret was quietly hunting for tiddlers in the shallows.
Several little grebe (dabchicks) were also out feeding.
A robin rested on a post.
And a pigeon sheltered from the drizzle…
Outshining all of these though was a tiny goldcrest, flitting in and out of the hedgerow. The goldcrest is the UK’s smallest bird (along with the firecrest). These were taken at ISO 1600.
