  4. Eurasian nuthatch

    Eurasian nuthatch

    Not many different species these days.
  5. Fieldfares


    Ours are away since November. A flock of these is now here for a week or so. I believe they are on migration from Northern Europe to Southern Europe. Pretty late maybe, I do not know, but they are way more shy than the ones that breed here. Above zero in the next days, maybe Munich is the new...
  6. Eurasian siskin

    Eurasian siskin

    When everything is frozen, snow helps them to stay hydrated. A wonderful sunny day here today with temps. below zero.
  7. Jay

    Very little number of them; possibly due to the mild conditions up to now.

  12. Eurasian siskin

    Eurasian siskin

    My first siskin this "winter". Their number is quite low at the moment; no comparison to past winters. Maybe more will show up when it is getting colder.

    Lovely and curious in front of my lens.
  14. Hawfinch


    At a feeding place. Pretty shy birds.

    A white headed one. It inhabits deciduous and mixed woodland with a well-developed shrub layer, favouring edge habitats. It can also be found in scrub, heathland with scattered trees, bushes and hedges, in farmland and riverine woodland, parks and gardens. (wiki)

    Normally kind of shy finches. A light drizzle started but I stayed and was rewarded with this picture.

    Recently captured an adult but have not seen the youngsters anymore. Looks like a lovely relationship, does it?
  20. The new kingfisher bird

    The new kingfisher bird

  23. Grey heron

    Shy is different.
  24. Goshawk


    One of the adult goshawks that is/was parent to the youngsters that I earlier showed this season. Guess they already know me 👀. It perched close to me (almost full frame) and I had plenty of time for a picture. Maybe a case of corrupted wildlife?
  25. Acorn season

    Acorn season

    Very entertaining to watch them when an acorn is falling to the ground. They can become very nasty to each other.
