Day two with new camera..
Day two saw me taking the plunge to walk round the frozen Tarn at Yeadon, even through summer it's a cold place to be.
Most of the water was frozen with pools of water amongst the ice.
The birds get fed well here on bread as is a popular place for parents to take their children.
There is a good number of Mute Swans and will come out of the water to take bread.
The Gulls were huddled together round the edge of the ice.
The Mallards were sunning them self's by the island.
The ice was moving and groaned as it lifted up and down.
The Pussy Willow looked stunning against the blue sky.
This Song Thrush was hiding amongst the trees, at first I thought it was a Mistle Thrush but it did not fly of shouting angry words like they do. Not 100% sure though. This is bird 24 and I need to add Great tit (23) from yesterday.
I was having trouble holding the camera still when shooting high up in to the trees, did manage to get a photo of a Gold finch (15) . The camera is a little slow at focusing and the birds moved of before I managed to get a shot, took a lot of photos of half a bird , should come with practice.
The Gulls on the ice were standing still so tried a few things on the camera but when I got home I could not remember what I had done, there is a voice recording button you can press to record next to the photo which is quite cool but not tried it yet.
Yet again the cold took over and hands became numb, we will have to come back another day.
I will leave you with my Daffodils and Tulips in the sun..
