A Whitethroat Pair


Whilst out searching for butterflies I happen to hear a familiar machine like chatter in the hedgerow.
On closer inspection I observed two Whitethroat working their way through the hedgerow in order to feed their young.  I took a few rapid shots of the pair and left, as they were obviously trying to avoid revealing the whereabouts of their nest.

  3. Hi Roy,

    This is a nice double catch, I think they are funny birds to see. I don't see them very often and making pictures is hard. So you did well, even a pair! Very very nice. Hope you'l manage to see the babies later this year.

    Regards,
    Marianne

  4. That first shot is pretty cool. I can be tough to get a pair of birds in one frame.

    1. Thanks GG.
      Yes that one is saying, "Does he actually know what he is doing with that camera."

  7. One is great but two is a real treat Roy. They don't often show themselves for me. Lovely photos.

    The Common Blue photos on the last post were superb! I only saw one or two last year and none at all so far this year. The photos of the Great Crested Newt were great too. Not seen one since I was a child!

  11. Great shots! It is always hard to decide when we have "bothered" a bird long enough with our camera. I start feeling guilty for interrupting whatever they are doing. I'm glad you got such good shots, but also left them undisturbed.
