Good close up and contrast of lower body of a rarely seen visitor Bob and always nice to see new names on iwitness24 to whom a warm welcome is always extended by iwitters the social arm who meet around the counties throughout the year on Thursdays and Sunday's.
All Crows are Black birds but not all Black birds are Crows!
The snow provided an excellent backdrop for bird and wildlife shots and as you say offered some a break from working and a chance to get out with their cameras. I still work and often at weekends and public holidays but it means that I can visit and recce places which are a lot quieter and better for photography in the week and arrange meets for both workers and retired members of iwitters who now number over 70 on my mailing list, to which you and all the commenters are welcome to join. Happy Snapping!

A warm welcome awaits anyone who would like to join our iwitters meetings around Sufffolk and Norfolk.. We meet during the week and on Sundays for the workers. We have a rough plan of our meetings and dates for the year but nothings set in stone and we're always looking for new venues. As a worker I to was unable to join the group but I will be at the First Sunday meeting later in the month. Peter Bash has an email list of 60 members and shares information between us all. Please contact Peter Bash at for a provision calendar of our meetings and any ideas you have of future meetings. Look forward to seeing you soon.

Just to say a big thank you for all those who have taken the time to comment,didn't see any of the regulars but they seem to have a great day out, maybe next time it could be a weekend for us workers:)
