More Busy Birds

Mr Chaffinch busy collecting food for young in a nearby nest.




It remained still for a short period as I walked by and tried to blend with its background, not wanting to give away the location of the nest.


Below is a pair of Linnet that have a nest nearby. 
They took a short break from parental duties to pose for these shots.
As you can observe they don't look their best at this busy time.

  4. Great captures, Roy, and I especially love Mr Chaffinch... :)

    Yesterday I saw green woodpecker in our garden, pecking at something on the ground for quite a long time, it was wonderful to watch it!

    2. Sadly, I didn't. I was watching too long, trying to figure out what kind of bird it was and when I finally grabbed my camera, sun appeared from behind clouds and all the birds sitting on the ground flew away... But you know, I don't regret, it was a nice experience anyway. :)

  5. I love those shots of the chaffinch, it's a busy time for birds with youngsters to feed and all the rain can't be making things any easier for them.

    1. Thanks Gunilla, yes they are colourful birds, but often overlooked as they are a common species.
