Hopefully tomorrow, my computer will be restored back to full health; one way or the other. Been kind of lost with it only working for an hour at a time. The upside of all this though, is it's given me more time to do other things, instead of sitting staring at a screen most of the day.
Anyway, here's a few pictures from recentish days past.
Back to January, and a Black-headed Gull regurgitating a food pellet.
I've seen Robins do it too, and I thought it was just Owls that did that.
A Red-legged Partridge that posed for some pictures.
A Shoveler, shovelling in the sunshine.
And having a good splash around.
March gave me some lovely birds in Wales.
A Siskin, telling it like it is.
A Yellowhammer, who looks like he's heard it all before.
A singing Skylark
This Goldfinch seemed to be frowning.
Or maybe it's just me.
'Bird on a stick' ........... but a nice bird. A Stonechat.
and as I left Wales, some snow on a mountain.
Back home to Milton Keynes, and a quick visit up to Summer Leys in Northants to see the Long-tailed Duck.
Picture not brilliant, very distant, but a lifer for me, so it's in.
A male Red Crested Pochard feeding his mate with some weed. A bit of spring bonding perhaps?
This is definitely some spring bonding.
A pair of Pheasant continuing the line
And to end the March selection, a pair of Adders.
The male is black, the female brown. I learnt later that the blue eyes of the male, mean he is soon to shed his skin.
April next time.
Right, I'm off to have a bath. It's not my birthday yet, but it is soon.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
