No way can I capture the wonderful bird images the experts post on this site but thought you might like to see a few of the visitors we are keeping in good nick during these tough days weatherwise. We reckon we have around 250 Bramblings alone and we had 14 Pheasants in the garden this morning. Lucky us, even if bankrupt!!! At times it feels like feeding the biblical 5000 but in truth it's a privilege and a pleasure!

All 4 images were taken through the double glazing in the computer room and the white marks are from where the snow had landed on the glass.

Special thanks are due to both barbarahirst and taggart for their generous UAs which they gave to Jack Frost, Artist Supreme.

Plenty of nice birds there Ann, as said the flyer is a bonus, I'd be quite happy with those shots through the glass, and the pheasant shot is respectable if you consider your not sitting in a hide almost next to them for a few hours, so well done you!, like all the shots, regards Leon.GrinGrinGrinGrinGrin

A wonderful wintery picnic, although the Finches are rather beautiful and certainly charming, I really have a soft spot for Pheasants

Some must be telling their pals where the best feeding station in the Borders is sited, Ann, when you get as many visitors as this: must be quite expensive too as you indicate.

V3 is my favourite, it has better light than the others.
These pictures, with the table and chairs, remind me of this advertisement....."It's just so hard to get a table".

These are wonderful images of birds in action and will be appreciated as such and are just as relevant as close-ups of birds on sticks.

I'm noticing how the snow is also disappearing from frame 1 through frame 4. I also feed the birds and find great pleasure in watching them - that pheasant must really have been a sight in real life!

Nice work.
