With the evening coming up fast and the cold, wet and windy weather we have had today, the local bird population are desperately trying to top up their energy levels to last the night, especially as many of them have young to feed as well. There is regularly a half a dozen birds either feeding or waiting to get on the feeder this evening.
One of our small flock of Chaffinches that regularly come into the garden.
Another Chaffinch photo. This one had just quickly flown to the feeder, grabbed a Sunflower kernel and flew back to the tree to eat the kernel. It was too busy at the feeder for it to feel happy 🙂
A really colourful Chaffinch in full mating plumage, waiting in the Apple tree for his turn at the feeders.
Another photo from yesterday’s shoot. A flyby takeaway! This particular Chaffinch rarely lands to take food from the feeder.
I did not expect to get any photos today, it is very dull and grey out there. I a selection of photos of a Chaffinch feeding on the feeder. The photo had to have a very high ISO because of the weather and photographing through our dining room window, so the definition is not great, but I still like the photo
At last, some sunshine this morning, before the rain came in. This Chaffinch was in the Apple tree waiting his turn to feed.
A Chaffinch standing on a tree stump looking at the camera with a sunflower kernel in it’s beak.
This is the second photo from the series I took of the Chaffinch on our kernel feeder. I liked this one as it is not one I often get in focus as the bird is in and out of the feeder so quickly.
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.
