20th November 2019 – Eastville Park Bristol

This morning it was very cold and gloomy in the park. What a difference a couple of days make! On Monday I took more photos than I would care to admit. Today I didn’t take my camera out of my bag until just before leaving the lake when I saw a couple of goldcrests fidgeting in the branches and four long-tailed tits darting around them.

With the firecrest, the goldcrest is the UK’s smallest bird but a real treat to see. The photo I offer here is not what I saw with my eyes but a greatly enhanced image due to the magic of Sony (camera) and Adobe (software).

Today on the lake I could see only one grey heron and a couple of cormorants. I could see no kingfishers, neither the drake goosander nor the little grebe. But on the other hand I didn’t stand around for long looking.
