2016 Highlights on HC

Here are a very small selection of the highlights I have had on Highgate Common this year.

I hope you enjoy them, as much as I had the pleasure in photographing them….

I’m really hopeful we will get some nice frosty and sunny days, so I can have a few more days over HC this year!!!

Saturday… Sunny and 9ºC, but feeling warm for the 5th November.

Went to Highgate Common today hoping to photograph the small flock of Siskin I saw the other day. I did not even find them this morning. I thought I saw them over by the Island Pool, but it turned out to be a very large flock of Goldfinch. The Goldfinch were high and busily feeding on Silver Birch and Alder seeds….

With such a big flock I did scan through them, and luckily I noticed a couple of Redpoll. On such a quiet day, I was happy to find them. This one was sitting out in the glorious sunlight. On the bottom photo you can see some Silver Birch seeds the Redpoll has dropped….
