A busy time in the garden at this time of the year with the bird feeders. Here is a Greenfinch coming in for some food.
Lots of Goldfinch activity on the feeder yesterday!
Going through my photos, I found this one from earlier in the year. A rather fluffed up Goldfinch trying to stay warm in the snow. I wounder what this winter is going to be like?
A lovely Robin that was entertaining us with his song while we were sitting out enjoying the sun at the weekend.
A lovely Blue Tit seen in the garden recently.
We had great fun watching this Blackbird feeding right next to us.
A rather grainy photo (taken through a dirty window with the sun shining on it) of 2 Goldfinches racing to get to the feeder. This one lost! 😀
A wet Blue Tit. One of the pair of Blue Tits who regularly use our feeder.
Harvard landing at Duxford.
Two young Greefinches sitting in the apple tree.
Well after several weeks of not having any time to do some bird photography, I finally made some time and just sat and watched the feeders in the garden. Unfortunately, having been away so long the birds have forgotten to ignore me, so only the Robin was brave enough to feed while I watched.
We had a great time watching these Sand martins in the nests in the cliffs just south of Pakefield.
Another photo of the Sparrow Hawk feeding in the garden. I am quite pleased with these photos as they were taken through a window and the bird was 40′ away. I have printed this photo out as A3 for the wall, it looks quite spectacular.
A Sparrow Hawk feeding on a baby Pidgeon that it took out of the nest at the end of the garden.
We have lots of House Sparrows at the moment. Here is a ‘cute’ photo of a mother feeding one chick while the other one waits for his turn.
The other chick did get fed next.
A great day last Saturday at the Duxford Airshow. The photographic conditions were fairly challenging for me. One direction was blue sky, the opposite direction was haze into the sun. Still I am quite pleased with the results.
The sparrows are eating us out of house and home! Mind you, the chicks like the one I photographed today are cute!
This weekend I spotted a lovely pair of Pheasants walking along the edge of a Rape field. These were process with the ON1 Raw 2018 program. I still have not quite got the hang of it yet.
This lovely Red Kite was flying over us a lot last weekend giving me plenty of time to take it’s portrait. 🙂
