Parkland Walk (2)

The second of a two part post of my recent walk.

The Great Tit which is now beginning to look so colourful towards Spring time.


Another Black-headed Gull on the ground this time.


Blue Tit Collage.


This Squirrel was scratching around on the woodland floor, but opted for a slightly higher perch when I approached.



The Robin which you can be sure to see more of now with the advent of Spring. (Especially in this blog) No doubt I will have some more Robin shots to show soon, especially as they are every person's favourite. {:))



I thought this cluster of dried Oak leaves made a nice image.....

Lumix GH3. 12-35mm 2.8 lens. 1/250 at f4. - 35(70)mm. IOS200
.....and with a touch of artistic licence


A distant male Goldeneye just rounded off the walk quite nicely.

    1. Thanks Jen, yes it was taken at an area in the Parkland that I walk regularly.
      They plant a large area with these flowers in and it looks lovely.

    2. Should have mentioned Jen. They plant all the 'Corns'.
      Corncockle, Cornflower, Corn Daisy and Corn Marigolds.

  2. You made again a nice walk AND nice pictures. Your artistic experiment is also very nice. Lovely to see all the birds and natures is changing towards spring, more colours (more fun....). I love the Goldeneye, they are so funny now throwing their heads back to impress.

    UK is also beautiful, you show us.

    Regards,
    Marianne

    The Golden eye is amazing with the wave effect on the water!
    Well done for the squirrel, a superb photo; I have never been able to approach one that much in years!

  6. Very nice photos again Roy. I too love the new header and always admired it (or a similar one) when it was on your sidebar. I always think how smart the Great Tit looks, as if it is in its Sunday best :-)

    1. Thanks Jan.
      I think the Corncockle was prominent in that one on the sidebar.

  14. Roy, I love all these images. the gull is quite beautiful. I love your new header photo as well! I think spring is coming to you faster than it is to us in the USA! And why do you think it is that we are all so in love with your English Robin? I am guilty as charged.
