Hazel, Love the Jay!
Referring back to my query on the last page of the original Bottoms Up thread--thanks Clare, Wendy and TJ. (The little grey cells are ageing so thanks!) My only previous exposure to 'TTT' is a poem by Piet Hein: Entitled 'T.T.T.', the translation from the Danish was published as:
Put up in a place
where it's easy to see
the cryptic admonishment
When you feel how depressingly
slowly you climb,
it's well to remember that
Things Take Time.
In reply to Gardenbirder:
That's really good, Ann - thanks for sharing it!
Our herring gulls are red listed birds. Think about that the next time you hear some flaming idiot calling for a cull of them.
In reply to Clare:
Sadly I don’t get to see any Jay's here :(
In reply to James:
I snapped this gorgeous reed bunting at Dungeness back in April:
I have one very similar to yours, Clare.
They're lovely little birds. I don't see them very often and I get nice shots of them even less often!
Same here, you just have to be lucky on the day :)
Gorgeous?? :-) The picture you posted of a Sedge Warbler in Dungeness IS absolutely gorgeous & I love it.
In reply to edgebander:
Thank you! I'm pleased you like it. I was delighted to have some nice shots of something........I took more than 300 photos on the day and very few weren't blurred.
