    Cracking B&W pics Nige

    Thanks, Mike. Most of my landscapes seem to end up B&W now - hours of fun in Photoshop, which keeps me out of mischief!

  • Lovely sets of photos Alan, the Reed Buntings are really handsome birds; with the Spring equinox and sunshine today we also saw Reed Buntings, Chiffchaffs, Linnets and singing Dunnocks everywhere ! Just need to see a major return of the warblers and then we'll feel like spring has sprung lol

  • Very distant photos of a Peregrine Falcon taken today at 3pm, had to use the 2x Convertor to get the reach. It stayed for a few minutes then flew off.

  • Mrs Mally playing hide and seek by the garden pond ......

    One of half a dozen rooks which were in Tatton Park yesterday

    It may have been far away but your big lens has captured it beautifully. Stunning bird.

    Unlike her to be so coy. Is Mr Mally still with her?

    @ Tony, yes, the drake is here too, occasionally they turn up on their own but majority of the time they are here together from early morning till it goes dark around 7pm. We also had a cock pheasant turn up this afternoon trying to join them by the pond until the Mallards swam to the other end LOL Wagtails have now gone - they tend to disappear just before breeding season until July/August time. Meanwhile, plenty to keep us entertained here with the Jays and other corvids and regular garden birds.

  • Such a stunning bird the Male Bullfinch is.

    I didn't expect this photo to be that good as it was taken handheld at 1/60's. It was more of a chance shot. The other dozen or so I deleted, thank goodness we have digital, when I think back to my old SLR Canon AE-1 I was carrying around in the late 80's in comparison to modern day DSLR's where some have GPS technology that will tell you where you took the photo.
