Goldcrest at Helston Lake

These four shots of Goldcrest were the best I could get today. I was intending to see the first year Ring-billed Gull but for the first time in a month, it didn't show! The light was poor and initially, the camera was registering just 25th second wide open at f/4 and ISO set at 1000 ! The four shots below were taken at 125th second so I was quite lucky to get anything. If you ever wonder what a Goldy eats during the day, take a close look at the third image and there is a miniscule caterpillar on the end of its bill.
