January 2020, lots of little birds and a male Hen Harrier!

2020 is already a month old, and I present my first photos of the year! 
There's lots of Chaffinches as usual, a spattering of House Sparrows and Blue and Great Tits, a few winter ducks and even a very distant, but very rare, male Hen Harrier! 

If you like my bird photos, you can buy my book '100 Birds' via my shop here;
