A few local birds during lockdown. A few additions Sept 19th

Post by Tuckat »

All these were taken during lockdown, either in the garden or at the local nature reserve, which is just a five minute walk from home and remained open (although the hides were closed) I hope they are of some interest, thanks for looking.

Just recovering my jaw from the floor, absolutely top drawer stuff Phil, so incredibly sharp and with a picture to tell in almost every picture, not just good portraits. Stunning.

Favourites are probably the "angelic" Kestrel and peekaboo Wren but nothing but admiration for the lot.

Thanks Skylinerworld, much appreciated!

Cheers Paul , that really is very generous and very kind of you. Im fortunate to live in an area with easy access to wildlife, and with no airshows to attend birds have provided a welcoming distraction :smile:
