when all the weavers, sparrows and bulbuls were away, this handsome one was finally able to come to the feeder, and enjoy some of the remaining cake crumbs and the mixture of grains (green lentil, millet, freekeh and crushed peanuts).
hope you like it.
Whilst I was searching for Puffins on the sea below the cliffs at North Head, St Bees, this Common Whitethroat landed on a fencepost a short distance away. It was clearly deeply unhappy about my presence, but in my defence I was there first and was in a publicly accessible area.
For the most part this bird was too high up in the treetops for me to get a sharp picture, but briefly, between the birchtop and the larchtop, it landed in this rosebush and this one shot seems sharp enough to identify. I think the light spot on its forehead may be just dappling of sunlight...
