Boldon Flats is a wetland situated between South Shields and Cleadon Village, a large area which is regularly saturated forming huge pools making an ideal habitat for birds and other wildlife. Now I am no expert on flora, fauna, or ornithology, so don’t expect me to know what this little fellow is, I ought to have asked one of the many ornithologists and “twitchers” who congregate here to spot the birds. Trouble is, by time I had handed over the camera the bird would have flown.
I think he’s a finch.
Camera details: Pentax K100D, 450 mm lens, 1/350 second, f5.6, iso 200
