We had our weekend walk around Rowney Woods near Saffrom Walden and saw a couple of Buzzrads flying in the distance. Unusually, 1 of them left his usual area and gave us a fly past as he headed off to pastures new.
Taken in the back garden, this Starling fledgling was not impressed to see mother leaving!
I’ve been getting a lot of shots of the garden birds recenty having invested in a tele-converter…which basically means I can get twice as close to the birds with my camera even though I’m stiil stood in the kitchen! More shots will be available on the Flitch Photography site shortly.
We finally made our escape from the confines of the house and Christmas and took a stroll around Rowney Woods this afternoon. Plenty of wildlife on view today including 3 hawks of some variety, a large variety of tits and finches, a number of grey squirrels and 29 deer. Not too bad for an afternoons visit…and the sunset wasn’t too shabby either.
