Below some classic naff Pod digiscoping efforts...in my defence it was seriously windy in fact more windy than a night of curry, beans and real ale with a touch of IBS (no that's not the norm I assure you).
A winter plumage Black necked Grebe...out of focus
The drake Smew, well some of it about 1km away.
The rather shy Greenland White-fronted Goose
Some very obliging car park Tree Sparrows (not a year tick by the way)
2012 UK YEAR LIST - 156 roll on Spring!
