Cannock Chase on 23rd February, 2010

Was passing Cannock chase, and so decided to drop in on my favourite feeding station, in spite of the leaden skies and awful light! The usual tits were about (read that whichever way you want!), but there was a small flock of Long-tailed Tits around. After only a few minutes, the Yellowhammers arrived. There were about eight of them - all males, in various stages of plumage, except one female. I missed getting a shot of the briefly visiting Willow Tit. Only stayed about half an hour because of failing light and threatening snow. Must go back when the light's better and get some decent Yellowhammer shots - yep, I know I've said it before!
