Knew this was yours from the thumbnail, a wonderful shot taken from the bedroom hide no doubt. I can only see one image at the mo but will come back when the rest have uploaded.

Lillian, these are fab - all from the 'safety and comfort' of your bedroom too!
We get lots of birds - but they tend to be woodpigeons, starlings, thrush and sparrow!!
Nothing as exciting as what you get - might have to change the nuts I put out for them!! Smile

That's the way to do it: sit at home with your feet up, a nibble and drink at your side, and fire away through the window: like it.
And what good results too, the subjects all captured in natural settings.
