Round up

A quick round up of a few pictures taken over the last few days of this month. I'm still working on the Christmas outings........

Common Gull, with two Black-headed Gulls.

A distant male Bullfinch, down at the local.

Nuthatch, playing, ‘lets stare at Keith’

A rather odd looking Greylag Goose

A distant Mistle Thrush. (too many ‘distant’ birds sometimes.)

Black-tailed Godwit. Yea, distant.

Grey Heron, trying to look inconspicuous.

Common Gull again.

Male Goosander. A good find on the local lake

A Grey Wagtail, strutting his stuff.

And to finish on.

This little Robin seemed so tame, vying for my attention.

How could I ignore a look like that?


  1. Some good images again Keith, all the best.

  2. Great pics as usual Keith and that Robin!! It's really saying " please take me home and look after me"; regardless of what's it's saying, how can you resist!!

  3. as usuall, great images. I am still working on that new camera but using the old.

  4. Beautiful Grey Wagtail.
    I love the way that Black Headed Gulls lose (in winter) their BROWN heads!

  5. You have a good variety of birds there, well done i like the first shot of the gulls
    strange to see them on grass.

  6. Thanks Adrian. I keep trying ;)

    Tricia, thank you. That little Robin was very bold. Almost stood on my boot at one point.

    Thanks Dale. Hope you get your new one soon. Can’t beat the thrill of a new ‘toy’ lol

    Jim, thanks. Always found that strange that they’re called ‘black-headed’.

    Tony, thank you. We seem to get quite a few on that area of grass. Must be something good there.

  7. They may be distant Keith, but there is some good detail in the Bullfinch and the Mistle. Altogether a lovely lot of images .

  8. How can you do it, they are used to you I think. Great pics Keith.

  9. Thanks Roy. One day I might get me a bigger lens, and they won't be so distant lol

    Cheers Bob, appreciate your comments.

  10. love the shot of the heron. awesome!

    Have a Happy New Year!!

  11. Thank you Doreen. And have a great New Year too.

  12. As always, a touching little Robin when you put your hand on him!

    Have a fantastic New Year with millions of great photographs, as you used us to watch!

  13. Marius, thank you for your comment, and comments through the year.

    Wishing you all the best for 2010.
