Bad pics of fab wildlife - part 2!

  • 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, 


  • 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!!

    A couple of a wood pigeon falling from a feeder, then going back for more.

    Sadly the autofocus didn't quite capture the moment clearly enough....

  • Hmmm- the thing I'm beginning to realise is that my brain filters out the boring bits (Canada goose and branches in the foreground) - so why did I think the camera knew I was focussing on the 2 male mandarins just behind? Doh!
