Now that the breeding season for birds is drawing to a close, the main activity is feeding.
Adult breeding pairs need to recover from the rigours of parenthood. Immature resident species need to fatten up for the Winter. Migrating species need to take on board as much fuel as possible especially the first year types prior to leaving.
I have shot a few general images of what I observed on a walk this week.
The Bullfinch certainly enjoys Rowan berries.
The Blue Tit likes them also, as well as Elderberries.
The Blue Tit can also be observed in groups along with the Long-tailed Tit below.
The Spotted Flycatcher needs to take on fuel for its journey to Africa.............
............ as does the Whitethroat.............
...........and the Willow Warbler
Its a good time to observe many species now, as from what I have seen they are more approachable because they are too busy eating.
