To celebrate the coming of a new year I thought I would post my favourite image from each month this year
An extremely confiding Robin at Fisher's Green Lea Valley
Walking along a beach in Ireland I came across this flock of Turnstones well
camouflaged against the Sea-weed Cos Strand Co. Kerry Ireland
The beginning of Spring! My Grandmother's ponds were filled with frogs, and I
learned that they can't see straight ahead so I could get some interesting close-ups
Kilgarven Co.Kerry Ireland
I found this Male Greater-spotted Woodpecker building his nest on the edge of the foot path
on my local patch! Unfortunately in the strong winds the tree was blown down
Valentines Park Ilford Essex.
In May I was fortunate enough to see Kingfishers fledging! There were at least 7
juveniles being fed by both adults. RSPB Rye Meads
While waiting for a train I noticed a family of Blue Tits and managed to approach
this one, and got within two foot! Moulsecoomb Train Station.
The first day I got the Raynox DCR-250 I was in the garden photographing and
came across this Willow Gall Weevil! Ilford Essex
I was back in Ireland again and when photographing Dragonflies by the pond I
noticed a dead ant being carried! Kilgarven Co.Kerry Ireland
After unsuccessfully looking for the Baillon's Crake at Rainham Marshes I found
this Water Vole posing out in the open! RSPB Rainham Marshes London
This flock of Goldfinches was busy feeding on Thistle Seeds before flying over to a
muddy puddle to drink! Abberton Reservoir Essex
This shot of a Grey Plover was Digiscoped at Two Tree Island . It was taken at dusk.

While waiting for a Nuthatch at my local Patch I saw this Robin who looked like
it had a scar on its cheek! Valentines Park Ilford Essex
All of these shots were taken using a Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ38 and adapters unless otherwise said.
Definitely the most shots I've yet done in one post!
