Brent Goose

A very confiding Dark-bellied Brent Goose (Branta bernicla bernicla) taking a rest from feeding. Taken during a recent visit to Farlington Marshes where thousands overwinter on the estuary grazing marshes.  FAB.

Female Blackcap

Birds are much more more tolerant of inclement weather than us mere humans! The pair of Blackcaps continue to visit our feeders so here are two recent shots of Mrs. Blackcap.
Both shots were taken 'through the window'.   FAB

Accipitor pays us a visit.

A male Sparrowhawk (Accipiter nisus) paid a rare visit to the garden yesterday and in view of the inclement weather I had to shoot through the double glazed window while trying to control my excitement. I will be posting some more pictures on my Early Birder blog very soon.  FAB.

Day Dreaming.

From my December outing I found a few unposted shots of Red Deer. So here is one of the bigger boys... 'Remembering what has been or perhaps dreaming of what is to come'.    FAB
