Crossbill's at Burrator 20th Jan 2019

Interesting behaviour in that about 24 Crossbill's were taking the cones off one tree and carrying them to the next tand fitting them into a fork in the branch to remove the seeds more efficiently. Shame about the bad lighting conditions, but it was ovely to see them.
