Default My last birding day of 2013

Wasn't too productive sadly. I took my family to Hardwick Park near Stockton which is sometimes great for bird variety, sometimes less so. Anyway, this is what I got, all at 600mm handheld:

A Moorhen sitting in a tree. I've cropped this to a portrait as the surroundings weren't too good. A dark location, so this was at ISO 10,000:

A Grey Heron. This bird seems to be resident in the park. He's previously been good enough to hunt rodents right in front of me (I posted those shots a couple of months ago). Not today though, he took one look at me and flew away to the far side of the lake:

A Dunnock. Foraging in the grass next to the main lake:

A young Mute Swan. Quite a large group of these at this location. People feed them every day so they tend to be quite tame. This one was approaching me hoping for something to eat (My wife and kids fed him whilst I took his picture):

That's about it from me for 2013. I hope you all have a happy New Year
