Blackbird

Published on March 3, 2015, by in Wildlife.

Blackbird

The most obvious choice for #BirdPoker  theme Black (curated by +Phil Armishaw) is the male Blackbird. This guy was showing rather aggressive behaviour towards another bird, fanning it's tail and bobbing it's head up and down. This aggression is used to establish territories in preparation for breeding!!

Greenfinch

Published on February 28, 2015, by in Birds, Wildlife.

Greenfinch

Another obvious choice for today's #BirdPoker  theme Green (curated by +Phil Armishaw​). This is a male just as a juvenile was flying in. A few seconds later there was a pitch battle and the male saw off the juvenile. I managed a few frames of the battle but none good enough to post, maybe next time I catch them fighting I'll get a decent keeper!!

Chaffinch

Chaffinch

For #BirdPoker theme Orange (curated by +Phil Armishaw)

Although a common bird, the Chaffinch is actually very colourful and attractive. This male posed nicely for me with backlight enhancing the details of the feathers.

A blustery day

Published on February 22, 2015, by in Birds, Wildlife.

A blustery day

The Bullfinch Pyrrhula pyrrhula has been regarded as a pest for centuries, although its economic importance appears to have fluctuated. Through out much of its range, it is restricted to forests, where it feeds on a variety of seeds and buds. In some areas, it has colonised more open habitats and created a serious problem by feeding on the buds of cultivated trees. The present spate of damage has caused fruit growers much concern since the late 1940s.

This male was picking the buds from this tree in my garden in rather strong wind.

Chaffinch at sunset

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

Chaffinch at sunset

The Chaffinch is our commonest finch and a regular visitor to most British gardens. This male posed nicely for me in glorious light as the sun went down. The moorland in the distance provided a lovely warm glow to the background.

Long-tailed Tit

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

Long-tailed Tit

An obvious choice for today's #Birdpoker theme Long tails (curated by +Phil Armishaw​​) but one of my favourite garden birds.

The Long-tailed Tit is easily recognisable with it's tail that's longer than it's body and its undulating flight. Often seen in small flocks of up to 20 birds they are gregarious, noisy birds.

Greenfinch on Corkscrew Hazel

Published on February 15, 2015, by in Birds, Wildlife.

Greenfinch on Corkscrew Hazel

A solitary Greenfinch posing nicely for me in a Corkscrew Hazel tree. 

The Greenfinch has been severely affected over the last few years by trichomonosis, a disease caused by a microscopic parasite. Outbreaks have been seen every year during the late summer and autumn. They have been studied by the Garden Bird Health Initiative. Greenfinch populations have been recorded dropping by a third, and Chaffinch populations by a fifth in those parts of the country that suffer the most serious outbreaks.

Research published in September 2011 shows that the disease has since spread to finches on continental Europe, most likely with migrating chaffinches (courtesy of the RSPB).
