One of the lovely Dunnocks I was watching last weekend.
Great fun watching the Sparrows and Dunnocks feeding off the seeds in the bushes this weekend. Our caravan makes a great hide, I can sit in comfort taking photos through the open window.
Snowing this morning, managed to get a few photos of the Goldfinches through the window. Too cold to go outside to photograph them! 🙂
We had a lovely walk along the river at Little Waltham the other day. There were this lovely pair of Canada Geese there.
I saw a flock of Birds that I did not recognise on my walk at Canvey West Marsh a couple of weeks ago. Asking around it seems that they are Lapwings.
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? 🙂
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. 🙂
2 Starlings suddenly realising that they are the only two birds left on the feeders!
It has been a while since I have done any photos from the garden as the light has not been good enough to give nice photos when I have had time to sit down with my camera. At this time of year the light is only really good for a couple of hours in the early afternoon. Therefore here is a lovely House Sparrow that I photographed at the end of November.
This Pied Wagtail was all fluffed up against the cold this weekend. I don’t blame it as it was bitter out there!
Another photo from earlier in the year. This photo of a young gull was taken at Clacton during a break in the airshow.
It’s cold out there. A goldfinch fluffed up to keep warm from last month.
This Sparrow Hawk was sitting in the tree in the back garden this morning. The funny thing to see was all the other birds sitting above him waiting for him to go before they came down to feed.
Robin landing on a pot to get the food dropped from the feeder. This photo was taken just before the one I posted yesterday.
Robin collecting food dropped from the feeder above. This Robin is quite a nervous feeder and he only stays long enough to get a couple of seeds before he flies off again.
