Festive photos

Here's some photos I've taken over the Festive Period of December, 
whilst going between Cemaes and St Helens,from North Wales and the North West-ish. 
Below there are shots I've taken of Two barred Crossbill at Broomhead Reservoir just east of the Woodhead Pass. The Buff bellied Pipit, Siberian Chiffchaffs and Northern Wheatear have been showing well at Burton Marsh near the border, along with Simon Hugheston-Roberts! The Hoopoe at Abergele/Pensarn was a good crowd-puller locally and I had this albinistic Pied Wag there to. I took a trip before Christmas to Marshide to see the Baikal Teal with two wings and no rings at a good time of year, that's good enough for me ;-) Finished off with a nice shot of the wonderfull Ruffs that routinely show well at Martin Mere in the winter months.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all of you who contribute and follow WBNW :-)
