A few I don't know, some new born lambs and I do beleive a bit of a sun tan.
Stunning photos Bob it looks like you've had a good day out.
If you want the birds ID,ing they are
and a Pheasant.
Nice shots, Bob. And to round off Alan's ID's I reckon the lambs are from Jacob Sheep; very pretty they are too.
Thanks Alan. First Bullfinch I've seen but was a bit silhouetted as it was high up. Great day in all. I saw some amazing things with crows and buzzards, fair took my breathe away, like the battle of britain in bird form. There were hundreds of crows and possibly around 4 to 5 buzzards, hard to tell as I was a little dumbstruck by it all.
Thanks Tony, yes they are Jacob sheep.
These were the crows flocking getting ready and then it all kicked off. The photo was to the right of the action as two buzzards reluctantly fled the scene.
There could be more Bullfinches about Bob keep a listen out for their soft call, I usually hear them before I see them.
Blimey I bet that was a sight to see.
It really was. Saw one of them a 5 minutes later I think, hard to say.
A couple more birds from the woods today. Dunnock I think and woodpecker (I know that one although it was a bit obvious). Couldn't get in a decent position for the woodpecker without spooking him (or her)
Nice one Bob yep it's a Dunnock.
Blimey he's not leaving much of that branch...well caught.
I do find the woodpeckers incredibly difficult to shoot. Only seen them 3 or 4 times in a year or more but always hear them.
lovely set of photos Bob, looking at that G.S. Woodpecker I know where to come when I need some trees taking down !!!
It was amazing Hazel, he went for it big time.... been watching birds for a year or so, really is amazing watching them. Even feel a little arrogant that I know where I can catch them etc. I can hear a buzzard from a mile away and how satisfying is to look over to the noise and see a buzzard.
Best thing is for me that I never made an effort to learn their noises but now I know 12 or more and can expect to see the bird I'm hearing. 12 isn't a big thng on this site but it still tickles me to see the bird I'm hearing... last year their calls would have all been a blur!
