Rock Pipit Portfolio

The Rock Pipit is a bird I don't have to walk very far to find.
Venturing out along the coast line at Portland Bill this week I was able to shoot these images of this much overlooked bird in this area.
A hardy resident, this bird is able to withstand the ravages of the cold windy conditions often experienced around the Bill at this time.


Health check. Due to specific targeted exercises I am able to get out walking again. So far so good.

The Robin
You may know nothing about birds. 
However, you can probably identify a Robin.

Another look into the archive for some Coal Tit images.
A really colourful and detailed species.

Marsh Tit

From the Archive

The Marsh Tit.
I took these images about 6 years ago in a wood known as Fineshade Wood. 
It was the first time I had seen a Marsh of the Tit species. 
There could have been a Willow Tit amongst them, but that is way beyond my bird identification abilities.

A real character in the bird World.
The Nuthatch 
Where I lived previously there was a great place to find the Nuthatch  located within woodland. Naturally, it was visited regularly by me and birding friends especially during the Autumn and Winter.

A Nice Find

Not hospitalised yet, but pain killers and physio for now allow me to go on a very short walk. 
I was rewarded after a brief visit into Penn Wood Portland by observing a Firecrest. 
I have not seen one of these for years and then two turn up in the same spot. 
This coupled with an appearance of a Wren made the visit worth it. 

A quick look on the receding tide at Ferry bridge revealed that a good number of Brent geese are now in attendance. 
I can never miss the chance of a few Brent Images.
