  • Going through this years photos and having a tidy up I came across a number of annoyingly bad photos.

    These are from March 1st, Upton Park, Poole.  Just as I was about to get snowed in for 3 days in the Travel Lodge.  Its a lovely park with plenty of interesting stuff

  • The last thing I expected to see was a Buzzard swooping down to nick the scraps put out for the Kites. Took me completely by surprise.

    wow Tony,  those shots aren't bad at all considering you were taken by surprise with little time to grab pics;    what a fantastic bird to have swoop down so close - I'd keep the chicken scraps going with camera on standby  lol

  • Wow is right!  Perhaps you can persuade it to come back when you are doing your Big Garden Bird Watch, TJ; I don't imagine many folk will have a Buzzard on their list!

    Kind regards, Ann

  • A lovely surprise … and I'm sure it will keep you busy for the coming days keeping an eye out in case it returns

  • Well, at least I saw a Bittern. I did actually see the whole thing but, of course, as soon as I thought to try and photograph it, it disappeared!!
