Missed opportunities

Posted Monday 20th February 2012 at 16:16 by Denny Woodthorpe
It is really annoying when you have the opportunity to get a shot you would really like, but fate gets in the way. Driving in to town this morning (shopping!) I noticed a bird in a hedge by the side of the road. A beautiful male bullfinch sitting in full view on a nice branch. I couldn't stop, even to point it out to the wife, as there was a car right behind - and I didn't have my camera with me anyway. For a while afterwards, I had the image imprinted on my mind.

Unusual presumed Long-tailed Shrike(Dusky) sp. fuscatus

Posted Thursday 16th February 2012 at 01:25 by BIJ
Lianwei, Haifeng, Guangdong, China.

well,I've found how to post in my blog, so let's get started.

Cold weather seems to be over - for the rest of the week. The local bird population has discovered the feeder - it needs filling every day now

The big problem with cold weather is that all the pipes on the farm freeze. Try transporting enough water for a goose to bathe in

Cold cold cold!

Posted Saturday 11th February 2012 at 20:07 by Denny Woodthorpe
Lincolnshire was the coldest place in the U.K. last night - minus sixteen degrees! There had been a freezing fog in the night before it cleared and it left everything covered in a white hoar frost. It looked like a winter wonderland when I woke up, so I set the camera up with the remote and put the heater on in the conservatory. O.K. I was being a bit of a wimp, but there was no way I was going to sit out in the hide in weather still below freezing. I was pleased with the results, especially as...
