Common Crossbill (Loxia curvirostra)

In October 2011, I finally saw my first ever crossbills on Ashdown Forest, first flying over and then later I was able to
watch a small flock feeding. I saw more crossbills... twice in the same week (after trying for over a year to see them at that location...like buses!). Brilliant and absolutely fascinating birds. Can't wait to see them again!
I also managed to get a few nice crossbill shots. Please click on the thumbnails for a larger version.
