New Years morning at Cannock Chase

After getting to bed at 2.30 am and drinking far too much on New Years Eve I forced myself out of bed and out in the cold for a few hours.  The weather was good and we even had sun shine.  

The light in the wooded area's can give the bracken a lovely gold color so this is what we set up for.  

The usual suspect turned up as we were setting perches up.  I never get tiered of photographing Nuthatches.  

It was also a treat to have the Long-tailed tits turn up a few times.

We had spotted a pait of Jay's which kept coming close but never did come down to the seed.  This wasn't helped my the amount of people walking and dogs but that's always the way on New years day. 
A Treecreeper even gave us a quick visit.  At one point he was on the perch we had set up but just wouldn't turn around to us.  Oh well next time hopefully. 

All in all a good 3 hours in good light and one less hangover at the end.
