OLD PHOTOS

Just looking through some old pics before I got a Nikon Coolpix, they are not very good but have scanned them in, also came across a few pics from 2004 that I never put on, why i forgot about the Sora and Northern Oriole is beyond me.

SORA

More pictures that never made it on my blog at the time, the stunning Sora at Attenborough Notts 19th December 2004, though a dull grotty day the Sora gave stunning prolonged views. All taken with a coolpix 4500 through the scope.
