Took some snowy, icy bird pic's over the weekend more of the same bird species came to the feeders so I think I need to go looking for some different birds which I won't be able to do until after my hip operation which seems now won't be for a few weeks yet. Having said that, I do enjoy the one's that I do have and in bird photography you never know what will turn up. My mate Steve the nest finder Carter noticed massive flocks of Finch's and Thrush's on Tuesday afternoon 15th and looking on the local bird websites there has been large movement of birds lately they must have known the snow was on it's way. The lucky bleeders can fly away from the weather, can anyone lend us a bulldozer?!

A female Brambling that's been with the main finch flock for some time now.

Male Chaffinch

Here's a Nuthatch wonder it doesn't choke.

Havent seen one of these for a while a female Blackbird

Great spotted woodpecker.

Reed Bunting

This male Reed Bunting is almost in it's summer plumage.

You cant have snow without having a picture of a Robin.

This Jackdaw looks fed up with the snow.

Think this Jay does as well.

This Chaffinch has nicked a peanut whilst the woodpecker is feeding, he's taking a risk!

A Great spotted woodpecker sticking its feet and beak into the snow. Brrrr!

A Jay

This Buzzard landed on a lampost nearish to our house, the photo's aren't good (actually they're rubbish) these birds are in good numbers around our wooded valley's.

This Carrion Crow looks on.

You might have noticed that I havent put my signature on these photo's, there's that many great bird photographers out there that I can't see why anyone would want to use mine. Also I think they spoil the picture (suppose that's why people do it) and quite frankly I can't be arsed.


  1. Great pics, is this land open to the public?

    1. Thanks for the thumbs up on my pic's. There are footpaths that go through our part of the farm where our home is but you'll have to stick to them. The farmer knows us and my interest in birds so lets me walk all over but he wouldn't be happy with people he doesn't know. Having said that there are quite a few footpaths and we regulary have walkers up here.

  2. Fandabodsie!! Keep up the good work x
