Top British garden birds revealed

Published on March 27, 2014, by in Birds, Wildlife.

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.

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.

Treecreeper

Published on December 7, 2014, by in Birds, Wildlife.

Treecreeper

A very welcome visitor to my garden, I spotted this Treecreeper running up and down the trunk of  this tree in typical fashion. A tricky bird to photograph as they very rarely stay still and their movements are fast and eratic!

This is the 100th entry in my British Garden Birds album, check it out here: http://bit.ly/1s1z18w

Great Spotted Woodpecker

Published on December 6, 2014, by in Birds, Wildlife.

Great Spotted Woodpecker

These Woodpeckers are becoming more common in British gardens in recent years and my new garden is no exception. This one came to a tree only a few metres from my Breakfast Room window and allowed me to get a few shots of him before he jumped on the feeder.

Blue Tit

Blue Tit

This little chap was clambering around on the mossy tree trunk and must've heard me with the camera, probably in the fallen leaves, which made him turn round to check me out!!

Robin

Robin

I've spent the last 2-3 weeks setting up my new bird feeders in the garden and taking a few select shots of some of the more regular visitors. The Robin is one of the most frequent visitors to UK gardens and it's red breast is so easily recognisable.

Little Egret

Published on November 20, 2014, by in Birds, Wildlife.

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.

Blue Tit

After a rather long break I’m finally getting back to photographing garden birds in my new garden. The Blue Tits are one of my favourites to watch and capture.
