All Fired Up

When you have been filming birds for more than 55years there are not many local ones that you have not captured on film. However, last week one of our smallest birds called a Firecrest turned up in a Manchester park. I visited several times and eventually obtained several shots of what was one of the fastest moving birds I have ever seen – it just never paused in its frantic feeding. It would be good to go back for better quality photos but as Firecrests only breed in southern Britain our bird will soon be heading back south.
