This Dunnock was singing away beautifully!
V2 Will be my worst enemy...he knew I was there!!
V3Coal Tit
V4 a lovely young sparrow

So many different birds from my bedroom 'hide' but I think I have bored you all enough
and really must get on with some of the photos taken in France....still not processed!

V2 is there only because I really do not like him and he knows it!
yes I do agree he is cute, and waited for his photo take...but the water pistol was then used

Have a great day, time for me to top up the feeders!

A nice image.
I like the control of image detail and colours.
I think a thighter crop would work some off the top that will push the birds head on to the thirds.
Very well taken.

Another fine 'boudoir' set, Lillian Grin. Squirrels, foxes, cats, pigeons .... they're all fair game for my water pistol, 'game' being the operative word I think as they always come back for more to see if I can actually hit the target for a change!!!

A fine collection taken in the wild. The most difficult but satisfying photographing methods. They are all so good Lillian. The only reason why I don't like the greys is because of their effect on the reds. They were introduced into this country so long ago and have had many many years to establish themselves and establish they have!!. paul
