    Nearly there 17:09:00

    I liked this shot the best as the females eyes are closed and her toes seem to be curled more than normal........

    It starts 17:08:52

    Sitting outside having a coffee and was watching a starling on the fence singing and displaying, when along came its mate, so I pressed the shutter release (reposting the sequence as they had to be removed as I'd made a mistake uploading them, so apologies if you've seen them already)
  5. Not seen in the Kama Sutra

    Not seen in the Kama Sutra

    Tricky enough balancing on top of your mate, but even more difficult when you choose the apex of the roof on the local bird table

    Love is in the air

    mansaged to grab this shot of Mr Robin offering a meal worm to Mrs Robin. They would choose a pretty grotty day to do it, but that's wildlife as they say
  10. Cormorants but which ones?

    Cormorants but which ones?

    Watched a cormorant flying with a piece of weed and landed on a jetty and started this dance, managed to capture a shot just between the posts as the boat moved on, never noticed the blue colouring around the beak before

    3 of 3 photos from a 10-photo sequence - a blue wing teal drake mounts a hen, and forces her deep under water - i suppose the bouyancy is quite effective... ;-)

    Spring is (almost) in the air

    Managed to grap this shot of a GF giving it's mate (I presume) a sunflower seed probably as part of it's mating activities! Sorry about the quality, but it was taken through the window as it's much too cold to sit outside!

    Is this wide enough?

    It's them Robins again - As cute as you like!
  17. They're at it again!

    They're at it again!

    My two Robins are at it again so perhaps this means there is yet another brood on the way!Now I'll have to spend another fortune on meal worms! Boy did I have to move fast to get this shot!
  18. Love is in the air!

    Love is in the air!

    So that's were all my Mealworms go! Sorry about the quality - it happened suddenly, just now in poor light.
