In The Garden

I stayed at my friends house in Kirkoswald, which has an enourmous variety of birds in the garden including Blue tit, Great tit, Long-tailed tit, Coal tit, Bullfinch, Chaffinch, Wren, Nuthatch, Treecreeper, Robin, Blackbird, Dunnock, Greater spotted woodpecker, Jay, House sparrow, Heron and a regular Tawny owl in the night.

I spent my morning photographing these beautiful birds and here are a few snaps I managed to get.

There was also a sneaky visit from a little Bank vole, which was eating the seeds off the floor around the bird table.

Roof Herons

I was sat in my room and I could hear a very strange noise coming from the garden. I looked out of the window to see my cat shaking, staring up at the roof of the house. I glanced in the same direction that he was looking and to my surprise there stood a Grey Heron, staring right at me! I saw this as a good opportunity to get a few snaps and these pictures are the result
