Another visit to the bird hide and another bird. A friend called this a Reed Warbler, but it does not look like the bird in the RSPB web site. Anyone able to help?
I think you will find this is a Dunnock.....& a very fine image too if I may say so.
Haven't got a clue what the bird is. Fine shot of a beautiful bird. Click.
Beautiful shot of a dunnock.
Why are mine never this sharp?? Excellent, well done.
Beautiful crisp shot. Yep, Dunnock.
Looks like a dunnock from here.
Could be a hedge sparrow!
I thought Margaret would know . I thought it was a Dunnock or some people call it a Hedge Sparrow but no relation at all . It does warble so perhaps that is why some-one was a bit confused . Now I look at other comments including Margarets and they agree . Lovely sharp shot . Sitting very proudly and well presented .
Beautiful detailed shot, well captured.
Good shot, perky little bird well posed. (I did wonder about doing the "I Dunnock know what this bird is") but thought better of it - LOL
Thanks for your comments.
I had to wait for about half an hour for this bird to come close enough to get a clear shot. It would jump into view and then shoot back into the bushes. This is it just before it flew away again, and for once it paused to look around. Once again I cropped for this shot, but not as severely as the previous photo's.
Davidb I am using minimum aperture (f5.6) in this photo to try and get as fast a shutter speed as possible (1/400) at ISO400 and picking only the center focal point which is aimed at the bird. The rest is down to the camera/lens. Standard settings etc.
I have another post for tomorrow of yet another bird that I will try and find on the RSPB site.
The variety of birds at this location is amazing. There were some Crested Greebs, but they were staying too far away on the water. Something for another day.
Super shot, I think that it is a dunnock (hedge sparrow) but it is quite colourful for that lovely little creature. Wonderful capture, they are usually very shy little birds.
PS. Just had my books out, definitely a dunnock.
Excellent shot of a bird that is not often photographed - mainly as they stay on the ground. - steve
Good shot, lots of detail. Well done.
This one did take patience but it eventually hopped into a good pose. There is a rare type of tit (long tail?) I have seen twice. It's brown with white and black tails/wings I think, but it moves out of shot too quick. Something to work on.
My goodness your bird shots are good...this could adorn the front cover in any book on ornithology...sharp and realistically colourful. I am impressed.
A very sharp shot well done when I was a lad it was a hedge Betty but now it's a Dunnock
Wow, never seen one as close as this. thanks for showing.
