Since I was gone, I have seen many different types of birds that are new...

    Potential Goosander? UK

    Hey, I was lucky enough to see this duck today on my hike! I THINK it is a Goosander? I've never seen a duck like this, I'm not an avid birdwatcher, but I do very much enjoy seeing new (to me) species randomly. I didn't get a fantastic photo, as I only had my phone today and the duck was quite...

    Thank you for the kind words on the blue tit. A female pheasant for today. Golly! I hadn’t realised she was so special! We get lots of pheasant in our garden and I thought she looked a bit different.

    I was quite pleased with this close-up. Although, it was a bit of a cheat (it was trapped and ringed, so this was taken in the hand).

    This female Sparrowhawk that regularly visits my garden to prey on House Sparrows flew extremely close by my window and after catching nothing this time landed on the fence long enough for me to grab my camera.

    Young Sparrow Hawk again

    Have had the hide in the wood for some time now and did not even no there was a nest only found it two days ago. If you look close at the head image you can just make out the hide on the left eye as you view. To say I was made up is an understatement took me minutes to come back down to earth...
