Saturday 27th, December. A crisp winters morning made a welcome change to the recent endless rain endured over the last few days. The dip in temperatures almost gave us a white Christmas but the snow fell on Boxing Day and sub zero overnight temperatures gifted us with some picture postcard winter scenery.
As far as birds go, it was a quiet morning. In fact the only birds I saw on Pendle this morning were Red Grouse. After crouching and staying low I got into a decent position to try and take a few photographs. My camera’s “quiet” shutter mode actually works quite well and I should have continued to use it but I decided to switch to continuous burst mode and as soon as the first few frames fired off then so did the birds – lesson learned for the next time!
