  2. A winter thrush

    A winter thrush

    This replaces an earlier version, in which the bird was exposed normally. Apologies to the four people who had taken the trouble to leave comments on the first one. The species isn't obvious in silhouette, but it's a rather distant Redwing, probably the last until next winter. Thank you for...
  3. Carrion Crow

    Carrion Crow

    Rather a frustrating bird to photograph in flight, not much detail shows up. Anyway, have a good weekend folks. Thank you for your comments, stay safe and well, and good birding! John

  6. Redwing

    Redwing

    In the leaf-strewn rainwater pool on top of our substation, having a bath and taking a moment to watch the world go by. Soon the last few will have left the UK and flown back to their northern breeding territories, where they nest low down in boggy woodland and birch forest. Thank you for your...
  7. European Goldfinch

    European Goldfinch

    Another Goldfinch shot from early February. So far It hasn't been a great year for small passerines, I haven't seen a Blackbird or Robin since November (which is ridiculous!). Hopefully things will pick up as the breeding season gets fully under way. Thank you for your comments, stay safe and...

    Rose-ringed Parakeet (female). Thank you for your comments, stay safe and well, and good birding! John
  10. Eurasian Sparrowhawk

    Eurasian Sparrowhawk

    Heavy crop. I wasn't set up for birds in flight, grabbed a few shots while it was still there. Thank you for your comments, stay safe and well, and good birding! John
  11. Grey Wagtail

    Grey Wagtail

    On 3 December, I posted a shot of this bird in the same place, on our substation parapet, looking immaculately groomed. A fraction of a second later, it gave itself a good shake, allowing this last one before flying off. Looking at its rear end, is that grey mass poop, on its way to join the...

  13. European Herring Gulls

    European Herring Gulls

    A bit distant (348 ft) but they're big birds, so not heaviest of crops. Thank you for your comments, stay safe and well, and good birding! John

    On the substation roof last year. Thank you for your comments, stay safe and well, and good birding! John

  16. Rose-ringed Parakeet

    Rose-ringed Parakeet

    Female bird. I wondered if it was carrying the snipped-off stem as material for lining a nest hole. Google gave no clear answer, but while searching I found a paper in the academic journal Current Zoology, which is worth quoting: "The rose-ringed parakeet Psittacula krameri is one of the most...

    Black-headed Gull

    Thank you for your comments, stay safe and well. John
  18. Eurasian Sparrowhawk

    Eurasian Sparrowhawk

    Extremely heavy crop, fairly extreme sharpening. The shutter speed, aperture and ISO make no sense for a flight shot, but I'd been photographing perched Redwings and there was no time to change things when this Sparrowhawk suddenly appeared in the distance. Thank you for your comments, stay...
  19. Rose-ringed Parakeet

    Rose-ringed Parakeet

    Thanks very much for the comments on the flight shot of this bird. I've no idea what the orange berries are, but the parakeet seems to like them, or at least think them worth checking out. Thank you for your comments, stay safe and well. John
  20. Rose-ringed Parakeet

    Rose-ringed Parakeet

    I still don't quite know what I think about these preposterous parrots, but they're thriving, colourful, and here to stay. Thank you for your comments, stay safe and well. John
