Red Kite & Great Spotted Woodpecker


Another bright sunny day so it's off to Holywell pond with all the gear to see what is showing,Great Spotted on the willows next to the hide with Great,Blue Tits,Greenfinch on the feedsers not much on the pond Teal,mallard & Tufted down at the far end lots and lots of Gulls bathing.
Tried to get some shots of the GSW but it kept high in the trees so after coffee it was off down towards the oberlisk area to try and see the Red Kite just walked up and overhead it flew and I rattled off a few shots,I often make the mistake of shooting with the wrong settings mainly because i forget to reset the camera to mid range and today I had done it again iso set to high and underexposed the bird overhead, a Sparrowhawk flew east and later a rather small Sparrowhawk was harried by a Crow to the north,the sun or rather the light goes quickly now so it was off home to look at my shots (this is when I found out I had the wrong settings again)
