I love watching the Chaffinches feeding, often they cannot seem to sit quietly on the feeder, they constantly have to flap their wings to maintain balance.

A Mute Swan and a Little Egret on the river bank at Hullbridge, Essex.

We had a great time walking along the riverbank at Hullbridge this weekend. I took several photos of the bird life there and will post some of them over the next few days.
