Brambling and Co

I ventured out on my first local walk for a long time.
This was fortunate as I found a male Brambling. 
I have not seen this species for many years, so it was a really good idea going for the walk.

Brambling (Male)








Chaffinch (Female)

I took a quick shot of this bird silhouette (below) high in a bare tree before it flew off again. It turned out to be a female Great-spotted Woodpecker.

Rock Pipit Portfolio


The Rock Pipit is a bird I don't have to walk very far to find.
Venturing out along the coast line at Portland Bill this week I was able to shoot these images of this much overlooked bird in this area.
A hardy resident, this bird is able to withstand the ravages of the cold windy conditions often experienced around the Bill at this time.




 





Health check. Due to specific targeted exercises I am able to get out walking again. So far so good.

The Robin
You may know nothing about birds. 
However, you can probably identify a Robin.

Another look into the archive for some Coal Tit images.
A really colourful and detailed species.
