Here's some of my latest bird pic's
male blackbird. we've had this one around all last year notice the white splash on the tail.
great spotted woodpecker amongst the feeders

This jay has learnt how to hold on to the feeder and empty about 10 peanuts at a time
It's got 7 peanuts crammed into its beak, wonder what the record is?
It then flies off to bury them. Been trying some flight shots lately without much success as you can see.
Have you noticed this great spotted's tongue poking out? it must have seen me with the camera, thier tongues have barbs on them and have a sticky substance on them also this is for getting at the grubs and insects that live behind the bark of a tree and for hoovering up the ants on the ground. Don't know what they use it to eat my peanuts for.
Here's a close up so you can see it better.
Between the squirrels and the Jays the peanuts in my feeders dont last long.
What did I tell you.
I know their greedy rascals but they are kind of cute.
The squirrel's emptying my bird table now! I'm off to buy some more nuts, and seeds and fat balls and............................?
