Feeed Me 2

OK, feeding station nearer home - near Cannop ponds in the Forest of Dean. Put some peanuts in and around the old post, chuck a bit of seed around and what comes along .......................

those well known woodland birds the goose and the mallard! A nuthatch demonstrated a different pose to normal as it warned off a rival
but the target bird was the jay. Several soon appeared, with just one thing on their minds - peanuts!

It's amazing just how many they can cram in at a time
Eventually the chance came for some shots that didn't feature nuts, just a shame the light wasn't better

More unexpected was the visit from a (rather shy) crow
Quite good views in the end - but aren't black areas difficult to expose well?
