    Welcome to England, birder!

    Next up I'll be posting pics from my March visit to the UK. The occasion was for another one of the crafts courses I'd been signed up for back in April 2020 - two days of learning to spin yarn. Fun! Also 3 weeks visiting daughter, with plenty of birding walks on my own while she and son-in-law...

    Happy Easter

    I couldn't find anything remotely funny in my current folders, so present a species that always brings me joy and I hope it does you too. The European Robin is my choice for today. He was in the trees at Craighall just before Christmas. Happy Easter to all my friends.

    That's the caption on a Tshirt I was given a few years ago, and Tshirt and caption both fit. Here I was so focused on this robin that I didn't notice the buds of the Ribes sanguineum (Red-flowering Currant) until I got the shot up on my screen. Of course I didn't get the blossoms in focus, so I...

    European Robins are fiercely territorial: even outside the breeding season, a male will not tolerate another male on his patch. These two are likely to be a male and a female. Regardless, it was astonishing to see two Robins, on the roof of our electricity substation, perfectly happy with each...

    In the woods

    Robins, robins everywhere ... of course. Being the national bird, they have every right ;) And I was happy to see so many so close up. I think this shot was the best I got. I like how the bird is caught in a glowing patch in the dappled light.

    A wee Robin sitting at the top of a Beech. I guess this should have been part of the hedge at one time, but it's slightly separated from it now. A lot of birds seem to like sitting there.

    I'm not doing any photography at the moment and am behind with my browsing, because of some eye trouble. I'll be visiting the optician. The joys of old age! :) Thank you for your comments, stay safe and well, and good birding! John

    What with one thing and another.... on top of a major laptop breakdown, I've very few images at the moment of local birds. Here's one that escaped the crash by still being on my camera LOL. Out with my friend to Craighall and he tried to take a picture of this young Robin on the gatepost...

    The neighbor kid

    The neighborhood had quite a few kids around the same age as the baby grey wag. This juv Robin posed very close and calmly, so I got a few good pics in spite of the dark down in the narrow creek canyon.
