Birds of the Week

A selection of images taken over the last week.

Mr Tufti was a sleep on the job and didn't want to be photographed. 

The main bird of interest was the Siskin, which was observed on some Alder trees in Radipole Reserve.
I counted six females and one male. I just couldn't get a good shot of the lone male though. 

At Lodmoor Reserve a Little Egret and a Grey Heron were searching and finding plenty of large worms in the water bed.

The usual flocks of Mediterranean gulls were resting at Lodmoor.

A pair of Mute Swans observed at Radipole.


  1. Great images! We used to have lots of Siskins in the garden when we lived in a place with a stream across the road, and Alders in our garden. Haven't seen any since i moved to the south, but we have Serins in the summer.

    1. Thanks Mandy. A Serin, a bird I have yet to see.

    2. Wouldn't be surprised if they don't start appearing in the south one day, with climate change! M
