  • Stunning Sunset and Cawing Crows

    This particular location tends to be a good place to spot some fantastic sunsets. There were no real reddy hues, but the sunset was a bright yellowy gold instead. I could hear the crows flying over, and had a feeling they were heading to their favourite trees. Most of them were already perched on a […]

  • Boisterous Buzzards

    I hadn’t heard the Buzzards for a while, so when I heard one calling, I grabbed my camera to see if I could spot it. I wasn’t too sure if the crow was chasing the Buzzard, or if the Buzzard was trying to chase the crow, but after they disappeared from view, three Buzzards started […]

  • Cawing Crows

    I don’t think you could miss the crows as they fly over – this one seemed intent on making as much noise as possible, before it landed in a nearby tree. #staywild

  • Another day, another Jay!

    Who needs a tree branch to perch on, when there’s a ‘house sold’ sign in just the right location? #staywild

  • Charming Goldfinches

    I heard some small birds outside, so I grabbed my camera…. I wasn’t quite anticipating so many goldfinches though! They eventually landed in one of the trees, and started eating what I guess was insects from it.   #staywild

  • Red Sun in the Morning….

    Would that still count as Shepherd’s Warning? Sahara dust, plus smoke from Portugal’s and Northwestern Spain’s forest fires, combined with the atmospheric disturbance caused by ex-Hurricane Ophelia, to scatter light particles. That meant more of the red light spectrum was visible which gave the rather eerie red sky. (explanation courtesy of Metcheck) The sky had a […]

  • Splish Splash, he was taking a bath

    A bird bath that is – I think the birds were pleased that the bath was full…. although after all that splashing, I think I might need to top it up again!   #staywild

  • Bird Spotting

    For small birds, they aren’t half noisy! You can usually hear the Long Tailed Tits before you see them, but this time they were joined by some Blue Tits and even what I think is a Coal Tit.      The Coal Tit seems to be one of the few birds that can successfully get […]

  • Watching the birds

    I looked out of the window initially, to try and spot the small birds I could hear. I managed to catch sight of one in a nearby tree. But then I noticed a larger bird arrive, and head straight for the seed feeder. I know that pigeons have tried knocking the feeder sideways in the […]
