From the Window

Its a long while since I have completed a 'From the Window' post.
However, two Woodpigeons were feasting on the emerging buds and leaves of the Flowering Cherry Tree and this presented an opportunity for a few shots. Normally when shooting through double glazing its best to place the lens at right angles up against the glass. The problem was that the Woodies were close enough to the window that this would have scared them off. 
So the result was not such clear images, but you get the general idea.







Woodies are adept at climbing and hanging on to tiny little twigs that hardly bear their weight.

  5. Hi Roy,
    Did you see the Red-throated Diver on Gunwade Lake today? It`s been there for a couple of days. It`s in winter plumage so can be confused with Gt Crested Grebe at a distance as it has a white throat.

  7. I love these shots Roy! I like the ones with the wings out. I seem to do a lot of shots out the truck window lately.

  8. Pigeons may be common birds but they are certainly not 'ordinary'.
