More Garden Visitors

It is a bright start this morning in Boro garden where the temperature last night dropped to around freezing. I have fed the birds, although they don’t seem particularly interested and set a camera running on the bird table. Before I go for the paper, a Saturday morning ritual, I thought I had better get this post published.

Last night I put together a few more pictures of visitors to Boro garden, taken since the New Year with my new camera. This greater spotted woodpecker paid a visit on two days running. The first was late in the afternoon in poor light. Each time he feasted on the peanuts long enough for me to get a few shots and I am quite pleased with the picture from the second visit. I still need to practice an awful lot because despite taking a lot of pictures, only a few are worthy of showing to anyone.

Two collared doves turned up one day and I managed to catch this one in the apple tree but couldn’t place both in the frame at once.

This squirrel is normally a nuisance in the garden, but on this day he did look cute with his big bushy tail.

To finish, on the bird table is one of the smaller visitors, a great tit who seems to be looking for a particular seed on the table. I get a number of great tits, blue tits and coal tits visiting, but find them particularly difficult to catch in a full pose because they dart about so quickly.

Just another brief post to ease my way back. Hope you enjoy.

    • Thanks again for your continued interest. It always seems to me that many of your birds are more brightly coloured than ours. I am having fun with the camera – deleting as many as I keep haha. All I need now is for the birds to keep coming into the garden. They have a habit of disappearing in late January.
