So near and yet ...............

The firecrests at Orchard Pools, Severn Beach have been provoking some fair interest locally, and they have been showing quite well - if you get lucky. In the gales and rain last Sunday I had the merest glimpse in the depths of the hedge (it was a long day, half spent sheltering in the car, the rest getting colder and colder), but today was better and I had some pretty good and close views, despite a much shorter visit. Sadly getting a picture was another matter. If only I could have moved it along a bit to a more open area! Still my first ever firecrest - let's celebrate the positives!
