Bought myself some camouflage netting to put over the bedroom window or over me so I can get a bit closer to my avian friends. I was hoping to be able to keep the window open because they say by shooting through glass the quality of the pictures drops off quite markedly. The thing is the weather has changed over the last couple of days and it's been blowing a gale up here so no windows were open but still had to try out the camo net. The shyer species were still a bit skittish so don't know whether it'll work or not but I did get some decent photographs out of an hours session. By the way the wife thinks I'm bonkers, thought she would have worked that out by now after all these years.

sort them feathers out!
Let's hope for some decent weather so I can open my windows and hopefully get some even sharper shots, having said that I'm not disappointed with these.


  1. Loving the camouflage curtain Dawson - I can hardly see it! That's the great thing about camouflage.

    I took some binoculars on holiday at Easter to look for birds but we're on a busy road so there wasn't much happening in that respect. I'll keep looking.
