In Manning Park

We made a few stops in Manning Park where I managed to photograph this cracking male Golden-crowned Kinglet, surely along with Ruby-crowned Kinglet a future addition to the British List… worth checking all those Firecrest on Scilly for birds lacking the bronze shoulder patch. Even at ISO800, my shutter speeds were low so neither photo is totally ideal on these fast moving birds.

At the Western end of the park our last stop before Hope was at Sumalo Grove. Despite the very high water levels this distant American Dipper was picked up.
