  • I just realised I had a problem with downloading this stream and went to the Carnyx page to re-set-up and look who was there!  Panic!

    Couldn't believe my eyes when I found it to be the very first living creature at the feeder this morning, it only stayed a few seconds.

    (This frame is suppose to match the bottom of the feeder.  I've decided that one reason why it's so difficult to match colours is that the frames have lots more pixels than the pics.)

    A bit later it was waiting and it did come back to the feeder but I've already done a snap.  This frame was noticed by chance in PhotoScape (free software, no nasties in it).

    Puff-ball tail:

    All the Tits were there in the first 15 minutes or so.

  • super-snapper-scylla!
    Cam is off-line. Again...
  • The Crestie had just seen off a Coal Tit, now it's thinking about having a go at the Chaffie:

    The Chaffies hadn't arrived until 2-3 hours after the morning get-go, but then were frequent visitors.

  • What a lot of Crestie action today!  (As long as you've got it all on tape to check thru )

    The little blighter on the rope chased off the one on the feeder:

  • The feeder cam went down @ 03:26.

    But while checking the rest of the previous day, I found to my surprise that we'd never seen such Crestie presence, and that one (or 2 or 3?  I couldn't tell, as "the bird" flitted off and back a couple of times) was the very last living creature at the feeder, it spent over 7 minutes munching :o

    Having already done snaps superior to what I'd have got from the evening session, yet needing to put the dear birdie/s on the record, here's a 4x FF video:
