ABOUT ME

I live in a camper van with a couple of West Highland Terriers for company.
My passion is photography but it is a work in progress.
I am always willing to share what knowledge I have and can be contacted through the comments on this post or e-mail ADRIAN

FRIENDS ARE BACK (24/03/10)

To be more accurate we are back but no matter they seem  pleased to see us

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA                                         Three or four Bluetits.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA                                           Dozens of Coaltits.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA                                           The Nuthatch is much tamer. Due to the wind I could only unwind the awning a couple of feet or so. He appears quite unperturbed.

   OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA               The Pheasant gratefully collecting what the others throw away.

 OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA                            As is the Grey Squirrel. I’m undecided about this one as it does seem to have ear tufts and isn’t very big.

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA                           These are going to become the bane of my life this week. Either moving at the speed of light or perched bobbing tantalisingly out of range.

I am also getting Great Tits and Chaffinches at the feeders but they are unusually shy.

  1. Hi Adrian.
    You are one up on me...I have never photographed a Nuthatch. Actually I have not seen many..three I think. The Dipper is always a problem. Once disturbed they do not go far but once you are rumbled the chance of getting a good shot is virtually nil.

  2. Trevor, I will second that, frustrating wee things. The problem with the site is that it's surrounded by Rhododendron so I have to get them on the feeders.

  3. That Nuthatch is a cracker Adrian. Looks like he's giving you the eye.

  4. Keith I'm amazed how trusting it is being only a yard away.
