A Search for Birds

As I have said before recently, birds are not easy to find at the moment. They are still hiding away in the thick bushes and trees around the area I normally walk. I made an effort to search for some this morning and came up with just a few.

This Whitethroat only stopped momentarily in the open while it was in transit from one lot of thick bush to the next. If its a clear night tonight it will probably get airborne for the South coast on its migratory route.



This female Blackcap below was playing hide and seek with me, but eventually I got a couple of partial shots.



This Woodie below wasn't particularly bothered if I found it or not.,


One bird that was not hiding away - The Grey Heron.


When searching through the thick tree branches you may find more than you bargained for.

  2. Yes beautiful shots! Not many birds to be seen by me, the sparrows in their penthouse have done their breeding for the year,and now I feel that the world is going to sleep again

  5. Well found Roy, it's not easy at this time of year!
    You know that you shouldn't encourage those squirrels by taking their photograph, they'll just keep coming back for more!...[;o)

    No, finding birds as one walks is not the easiest thing, you did really well!
