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.

Listening Robin

I've been hoping for some decent light to test out my #canon7dmarkii  at low ISOs. The sun finally came out and this Robin obliged by sitting posing, appearing to be listening for something, maybe the clunk of my shutter!!!

Goldcrest

It's the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch this weekend, everyone is out counting their garden birds, over a million counted already, one of the biggest public bird surveys in the world. 

I've just completed mine and the highlight of the hour was a pair of Goldcrests, the smallest UK bird.

Long-tailed Tit

My first decent bird image taken with my #canon7dmark2  and 100-400mm IS II lens. I got a little too close with this shot and forgot I had a zoom lens after using my 300mm prime Pentax lens for so long so I clipped the tail a little. This does show off how sharp the lens is and also the high ISO capability of the 7D Mark II (shot at ISO 5000).

More bird shots to come soon once I get round to processing them.

Wren

Published on January 11, 2015, by in Birds, Wildlife.

Wren

The Wren (Troglodytes troglodytes) is one of the smallest native British Birds, only the Goldcrest being smaller. Despite it’s size it has an extremely loud and easily recognisable call and is a regular visitor to my garden although it can be quite elusive to photograph.

Blue Tit

I never tire of photographing these colourful little garden birds. This one was sitting patiently in my Corkscrew Hazel tree waiting for my feeders to come free.

I thought I'd post a full colour shot of the Cormorant having posted a mono conversion earlier this week. This handsome chap is a regular visitor to the Weir on the river in our local town and loves to pose for the tourists!!

Jackdaw

Published on December 12, 2014, by in Wildlife.

Jackdaw

The Jackdaw is a member of the Crow family mainly black in colour with a silvery sheen to the back of it's head and distinctive pale eyes. I thought this shot lent itself quite well to #monochrome conversion.
