As I may have already said the birds round here are very tolerant of my clicking. We went out first thing looking for the Cuckoo I wandered up the hill for three quarters of an hour, it was cuckooing away but when I got to the trees it was in it started cuckooing from the other side of the valley. A pain in the bum is the Cuckoo. This was taken from a picnic table that was sitting on a knoll about ten minutes from the van. I’d never noticed it before.
This Orange Tip was taken yesterday. As always they will enlarge with a click.
I got back had breakfast and got Bertha out to get some better shots of the crow. It did put in an appearance and was a bit closer than yesterday.
Despite the variation in plumage I am going to call these female Siskins.
The sun has come out now so I’ll wind up this post and go and sunbathe.
As I rely on more knowledgeable folk than me please feel free to correct any rubbish I’ve posted.
