A beautiful weekend and a very informative and helpful course at Woods Mill courtesy of David Plummer, with me finally learning how to use my camera properly. While the object of this weekend was to learn the basics of nature photography, I couldn't help but get distracted by the wonderful wildlife present, which included this lone Marsh Tit which isn't looking very healthy at the moment, a real shame; a Wren in full voice atop a tree, rather unusually and this poor female Common Toad who had attracted the attention of two males, while there were also many calling all along the edges of the small lake! There was also an accidental shot of a Blue Tit, which produced a moment of artistic luck that I was rather pleased with.
