Wren and Willow Warbler

Took these two shots early this morning while sitting in my usual spot watching the Kingfishers.

The Wren, at one point, was right at my feet and the image here is uncropped so gives an idea of how close it was.  The Willow Warblers were coming fairly close as well.  I just had to sit still in the camo gear, hood up and eyes shaded and not make any sudden moves and the birds all started coming closer.

Unfortunately, didn't get any shots of the Kingfishers, even though they were very close at times.  At one point, one suddenly hit the water about 3 yards away from me.  I hadn't seen it fly up and perch on the ivy covered tree stump to my left, but it shows the camo helps!
