    Thanks, TJ, I'll let you know of she makes any more. In the meantime, she might permit me to post a photo of the first KF she made. She began with Robins and Blue Tits a few years ago, then Penguins and fantastic invented Owls and Hummingbirds and she has gradually gone to more complicated actual birds like the Kingfisher. She has ambitions to make a Bullfinch at some point in the future as well.

    Kind regards, 

    Ann

    He/she is keeping company with birds similar to it's own colouring evidently Hazy. I have heard of the term Manky Mallard too, but much prefer the Leucistic, much prettier.

    I get to see a Partridge now and again in the fields opposite my house Hazel, so far no young have appeared though. I wonder what Mum is saying to keep it in line:-)

  • Excellent photos from all, incl. partridges, KF's, watchful deer and colour-challenged geese.

    If you find the wild blackberries you've collected have been mildly nibbled, look no further for the culprits.

    The males are a little more circumspect in their fruity antics

  • Nigel, They are gorgeous little creatures--thanks for your lovely photos! We've only seen a few in the garden over the years but I rejoice every time I see one.

    Kind regards, 

    Ann

  • I don't mind them helping themselves Nigel, better than the flies digging into them before me!! Superb photos, haven't seen any this year so far, maybe I need to hide out under the blackberry bushes:-)

    They are turning up regularly in the brambles by one hide, so perhaps you should
