This blog is intended to follow my progress this year in my pursuit of obtaining some worthwhile bird photographs.
Very much a beginner, with limited funds but almost unlimited time, I want to capture photographs that are more than mere record shots. I am not expecting many rare or even unusual species, but want to do justice to any bird that cares to pose for me.
Wish me luck and good light.

Long billed blue tit!!!

Wow oh wow!
I am writing this as I sit in the garden shed, photographing the birds.
I have just seen - and photographed, the most amazing bird I have ever seen! Nothing less than a long-billed blue tit! Yes, really. It obviously has a deformed beak, but it has also obviously learned to live with it and feed successfully, as it could not have happened suddenly, but must have grown over a considerable time. The upper bill is the longest, being over a centimetre in length, with the lower bill being somewhat shorter. I have several shots of it feeding on the fat balls and it also fed on bits on the floor. It really is weird and also wonderful. I think I might pack up early so I can upload the photos to my computer (I'm on the iPad at the moment) and place the photos on the gallery. It really is unbelievable! Watch this space!
