Look what turned up in my small garden in Leighton Buzzard this morning one of about 12, as you can see the conditions and light were abysmal but couldn't resist the photo opportunity.

Dunstable Sewage Works 02-12-2012

On a very cold winters morning at the sewage works where some of the ponds were frozen over, there wasn't very much about early on other than the Lesser Redpoll feeding in the scrub at the top end of the first pool. I got to watch them for a good 1/2 hour before I got too cold and they flew off and I went home to Leighton buzzard, where I came across a gang of these Long Tailed Tits in my driveway.
