Here are some photos I took last Friday afternoon. I was walking in the RSPB reserve at Canvey West Marshes and through the trees I saw this Buzzard hunting in the reeds. I was so luck being in the right place at the right time.
We still have about a dozen Goldfinches that did not migrate south for the winter. They love the Sunflower kernels and we regularly have a few waiting in various parts of the garden to feed on the feeder.
Why is it when you have 2 bird baths with clean water in them, the Wood Pigeon wants to drink the dirtiest water in the garden? 🙂
Had a cold walk this dinner time, Even the local fishing pond was still iced over!
With this cold snowy weather, I am still processing the photos from last weekend as that was the last time I was able to just sit down and watch the birds. Here is another action shot of a Goldfinch coming in to land on the feeder.
Here is another photo from the weekend. I love this photo, although it doesn’t show a lot of detail, I love the light shining through the wing.
What a difference a day makes. Yesterday, this lovely Robin was singing it’s heart out in the sun, today it is snowing hard out there!
It has been a busy morning on the feeders. As soon as one leaves, the next bird is waiting to take it’s place. Sometimes they don’t wait that long before making it known it is their turn. 🙂
