Saturday

Somedays a day starts good;,



and then gets better.



Somedays the birds don’t co-operate very much


 This Song Thrush seemed to be very shy.


And yet other times, the birds can be more than happy to pose.


 A Great Tit, being very helpful.




 This Blackbird was unaware of my presence, and carried on eating,




 and this male Mallard was just enjoying some sun.


But when the sun doesn’t shine, we just have to grin and bare it.


 Female Goosander, putting her feathers in order.


Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

  8. Great set of pictures Keith,that sunrise was truly beautiful. A good example with the Songthrush picture of how some bird`s feather patterns work to make them disappear.
