Sitting in the garden the other day, the sun was shining, and the wildlife was abundant! I even saw a sneaky fox! The birds were being particularly talkative, so I thought I would steal the chance to snap some photo's with my new awesome lens. I was amazed at how clear these photo's came out, the trees are massive so I really didn't think I'd be able to get as close up as I did.
Anyway I managed to check off 3 birdies on my bird spotting list:
1. A Chaffinch - This fellow was particularly 'chirpy'. He was adorable. I don't know anything about birds but I managed to guess that he was a chaffinch. Hurrah for me! Maybe it is a hidden talent. David Attenborough eat your heart out.
-- Here he is again, making a racket.
2. The rare lesser-spotted Pigeon! Ok, so its just a pigeon, but a cool photo none the less.
3. A Magpie. This one is looking particularly mysterious as we can't see his eyes. I think he is incognito as he is about to steal something shiny.
Maybe not the most difficult of birds to find, but I think it is a good start. I'm getting quite into this now. Maybe I will buy a bird watching book and some binoculars and see how many I can get photos of!
Do any of you have any cool wildlife in you gardens, or like bird watching?
