Photo safari

We used the little sunshine today ….

A Carrion Crow along the way was playing with- or trying to eat a walnut.

Along the river we saw at least three herons, two of them were wearing their breading plumage which differs by the redder beak and the blue instead of yellow skin around the eye.

A tiny Blue Tit was willing to be photographed, however, I could get only one photo … well, better than nothing. 🙂
