Top British garden birds revealed

Top British Garden Birds

#ABPhotosUK   #UKBirds

I’m overjoyed this morning to have one of my bird images, a Great Spotted Woodpecker, included in a main article (http://bbc.in/QiDfXV) on the BBC Nature (http://bbc.in/1eTfEpi) website!

Following the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch survey in January the Great Spotted Woodpecker is now in the top 20 birds spotted in our gardens, rising from 25th spot last year.

The House Sparrow was still the most commonly seen bird despite it’s recent dramatic decline in numbers which has seen it classified as a threatened species.

The Blue Tit, one of my favourite birds to photograph, is now ranked second in the survey, it’s highest position since 1979. I can certainly agree with this as I see more Blue Tits than anything else here in Suffolk.

The Great Tit, the largest of the Tit species, one of the more aggressive birds at the feeders, was ranked number 8.

The Blackbird fell from second to fourth place, due mainly to the mild winter which has allowed the bird to find more food in the countryside and not having to rely on garden feeders.

Check out my British Garden Birds album http://bit.ly/1gaPIpp for images of some of the birds in the top 20.

Little Egret

My first visit to Lopwell Dam Nature Reserve on the River Tavy at the highest tidal point of the river estuary. I watched this Little Egret for several minutes before he took flight and came towards me across the weir.

Memories of Summer

Memories of Summer

I've had very little time for photography recently so I thought I'd share a Butterfly image with you taken back in July during our long hot summer. This is a male Common Blue possibly my favourite butterfly to watch and capture.

Have a great weekend to all.
