Description

Poor quality images of pairs that followed me around all morning whilst I was happily collecting saxicolous, crustose lichens. A frustratingly difficult bird to photograph with a poor quality camera (note to self - buy better camera). As you hammer out lichens they happily sit next to you contributing sympathetic 'peeps' when you bash your hand, but when you stop and point a camera at them they *&^% off... Still good to see they are still around, the world would be a poorer place without them.
