I don't usually take pictures of wildlife, in truth I don't usually even spot it.
But when waiting around at Monsal Head this cheeky chappy was pattering around my feet and was tame enough to allow me to get out the camera and telephoto. A few quick snaps and then it jumped onto the edge of the wall and had a right little pose for me.
Quite pleased with it to say I don't usually take pictures of birds (aye aye!).
And while we're at it, I feel it's the perfect picture to wish everyone a Merry Christmas (it feels a little early, but two weeks today who can believe it?!)
