  1. Nice selection there Brian, disappointed not to see any pics of Wanstead ;-)

    Have good Xmas and New Year 2021!

  2. Thanks Tony. Hope you have a good one too and I did consider the face down shot in the goose poo at Wanstead but the Hoopoe on the Dunge heap won by a nose :) (Do love my little trips to Wanstead tho)
