    TTTW. Thank you for your comments, stay safe and well, and good birding! John
  2. Rose-ringed Parakeet

    Rose-ringed Parakeet

    Not wholly welcome, in that they take food intended for Goldfinches and other small birds. But they're photogenic, both species are doing well here, and in any case, according to the Natural History Museum (London): “Tawny owls, sparrowhawks and peregrine falcons will all feast on parakeets...
  3. Common Wood Pigeon

    Common Wood Pigeon

    Trying to get this rather large berry down its throat, and looking like it's having second thoughts. It did swallow the berry, and a few more, but seemed to be making rather heavy weather of them, pulling all sorts of faces. Taken in evening light through window glass. Stay safe and well, and...
  4. European Goldfinches

    European Goldfinches

    Two adults and a juvenile. The juv was slightly nearer the camera and so looks larger (it wasn't on a collision course with the exasperated adult). Thank you for your comments, stay safe and well, and good birding! John

    Competition for the dwindling supply of pine kernels in the feeder is hotting up. Thank you for your comments, stay safe and well, and good birding! John

    ...but this looks like a Stock Dove. TTTW. Thank you for your comments, stay safe and well, and good birding! John

    European Goldfinch

    Thank you for the Stock Dove comments. Goldfinches have been absolutely stuffing themselves with pine kernels, from the feeder my brother has put up outside the window. (Hopefully these birds have been bringing insect food for their young, and just come to the feeder to replace the calories...
  11. Stock Dove

    Stock Dove

    This was one of the first birds I saw after moving into the care home. Hopefully a good omen! I'd never photographed the species before. There were two, and they reappeared a couple of days later. This place is very near a Local Nature Reserve, which has some urban woodland. TTTW. Thank you...
  12. Eurasian Sparrowhawk

    Eurasian Sparrowhawk

    Taken when still at my last home. Opportunities for flight shots are much fewer now, though chances of a perched Sparrowhawk (at close range) must be better. Thank you for your comments, stay safe and well, and good birding! John

  14. Eurasian Jay

    Eurasian Jay

    This was the only shot I got before the bird flew. Somehow the camera focused successfully on the bird's eye and bill, bit of a fluke really. I wasn't even using single point AF. Stay safe and well, and good birding!
  15. Eurasian Blackcap (male)

    Eurasian Blackcap (male)

    Thanks for the kind comments on the first shot of this bird. In this one, perhaps it's on the lookout for one of the local Sparrowhawks, but who knows. Stay safe and well, and good birding! John
  16. Eurasian Blackcap

    Eurasian Blackcap

    I haven’t been posting lately because my situation has changed. I've moved half a mile up the road into a care home(!). I used to have a view of a couple of miles from my flat, but here it's just a small back garden. In hindsight it had to happen sooner or later, as the stairs were becoming too...

    Another shot of the bird photographed on 30 March, this time looking a bit cuckoo-like. Very heavy crop.
  19. Eurasian (European) Blue Tit

    Eurasian (European) Blue Tit

    This was on the big tree right outside my window. Soon the tree will be in full leaf and block out a large part of the view, but at the moment it gives opportunities for photographing birds foraging for insects etc in its leaflets. Thank you for your comments, stay safe and well, and good...

    European Robin 443A8492

    The first Robin I've seen this year, so a welcome sight, especially carrying food. Thank you for your comments, stay safe and well, and good birding! John

    Rose-ringed Parakeet (female)

    If this looks familiar, I already posted a shot of it with the wings flat. It will be the last shot of this individual I'll post :) I don't know if the bright colour makes this species more obvious to Peregrines, but their loud calls do announce their presence. The falcon does take these birds...

    Coal Tit

    A different individual from the one posted yesterday, two birds were present. Thank you for your comments, stay safe and well, and good birding! John
