We are having an abundance of bird visitors right now.
I'd love to show you them all up close, but unfortunately I need to purchase a zoom lens first.
It's been on my 'to do' list since Christmas, when I was presented with a new camera.
One visitor that I'm particularly pleased to see returning this summer is the Yellowhammer.
I haven't managed to obtain a decent photo yet, but here's the RSPB website if you'd like to see details plus a little video... click here
Yesterday I thought that we had lost one of our Greater Spotted Woodpecker friends, because I found one little fella on the floor looking slightly dazed.
(I'd cleaned my windows the day before and as usual the birds seem to want to wreck my handy-work by flinging themselves straight into them, leaving a perfect imprint on the glass).
I checked the little chap hadn't broken his neck or wing and retreated to watch, whilst ensuring that the neighbours cat didn't come calling.
After quite some time when he hadn't moved, I thought he might need some water, so I carefully approached... which made him take fright and he flew away... off to the woods.
Note to self: Don't bother cleaning windows... that way I'm doing my bit for nature!
That'll do for me
Here's he is or possibly one of his relatives!
As usual I'm linking up with 'My Sunday Photo' with Photoalife, Wordless (on Tuesday at image-in-ing)and Mersad over at Through my lens
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, full of fun.
Thanks for popping by and I hope to see you all again soon.
