Goldfinch

Published on April 21, 2015, by in Birds, Wildlife.

Goldfinch

For #BirdPoker theme Beautiful Birds (curated by +Phil Armishaw), in my opinion, the Goldfinch is top of the beauty charts as far as British Garden Birds go with it’s red face, and yellow go-fast stripe on the wing edge.

Dunnock on a post

Published on April 20, 2015, by in Birds, Wildlife.

Dunnock on a post

A Dunnock (Prunella modularis), sometimes known as a Hedge Sparrow is in fact not a Sparrow but a member of the Accentors family, a European and Asian family, with few species, only two in Europe and one in the UK. Accentors are small, inconspicuous, streaked birds, with sharp, pointed bills and a slightly robin-like, pot-bellied shape. They live mostly close to the ground, with a quick, shuffling and hopping action when feeding (details courtesy of the RSPB).

Meadow Pipit

Published on April 17, 2015, by in Birds, Wildlife.

Meadow Pipit

Out on the Moors this week, lots of Meadow Pipits and Skylarks, another sign of the onset of Spring. Lovely to watch and listen to.

This Meadow Pipit allowed me to get quite close (shot at 560mm) as I laid on the ground to get a low pov.

Male Stonechat

Published on April 14, 2015, by in Birds, Wildlife.

Male Stonechat

This is the same bird as yesterday’s post, just before he flew off. The male Stonechat is easily distinguished from the female by his dark face and darker wings.

Spring is truly here

Spring is truly here

My first sighting of Peacock Butterfllies here in the UK this week in my garden, coming out of hibernation now the weather is warmer. Hope to see lots of new species this year in my new location.
