Treecreeper


Just occasionally on a Lockdown walk where nothing much appears,  something turns up to rescue what would be a fruitless day.

This Treecreeper happen to appear in my peripheral vision landing on a low tree trunk. It didn't hang around long, but I was able to get in a few shots.

A Lockdown walk

Lockdown walks can be fairly non productive in respect of nature. This is of course dependant on the areas that you can walk under such restrictions. However, it is surprising what can be observed even in the most modest of nature areas. 
Here are some scenes and subjects observed on a recent walk.
All of the birds observed are what one would expect to see at this time.

Reed Bunting (Female)


This female Reed Bunting certainly has the plumage to hide amongst the reeds.
On a pre lockdown walk around Radipole Lake Weymouth, I did eventually find her by using binoculars. The Reed Bunting is a farmland and wetland species feeding mainly on seeds and insects, therefore Radipole is a good habitat throughout the year.

Beardies



It wouldn't be January without a few Bearded Tit images.
It's a time when they are frantically searching for food and are not worried too much about onlookers.
