Streaks of Gold and Green!
I generally have something in mind whenever I go out photographing...Goldcrests were the aim and Goldcrests I achieved!
No need to ask where these beauties get their name from, the stunning gold streak on the head is the distinguishing mark.
However, whilst these were my goal for the day, I actually got a surprise sighting first. The Green Woodpecker (of which I might add, I've been after for quite a while). If anything, these made my day even more than the Goldcrests. I knew they were around but they'd always eluded me!
The lesson to be learnt from this weekend is: always keep your eyes peeled, you never know what you might find!
