Well, they’re far from perfect but have you ever tried to photograph flying tits, lol? It’s a nightmare. Of course John managed it and I’ll post some of his photos when I get them but his email’s down right now. Here are a few of my blurry attempts :)
Notice the bullfinch in the background? There were so many finches (chaffinches, bullfinches, greenfinches), tits (coal tits, long tailed, great tits, blue tits), LOTS of tree sparrows, the resident robin and many others. A real treat to be so close. We see most of these at home (not bullfinches) and more and they’re pretty close to the kitchen window but we only get to see through glass and sadly can’t take photos. Unfortunately, the woodpecker didn’t make an appearance that day.
The one above is worth enlarging – it’s a tree full of long tailed tits – beautiful :)
It’s at times like these that I wish I had a better camera but at least I have one :)
