In my garden.....

  • Thanks MC...always happy to share my daily delights with you all

  • So today I woke up to some snow...and only a few birds

    Then the guards of the garden (crows) were going nuts in the tree but I couldnt see anything...

    So I head out and fill my bucket with food for the feeder and and walk to the back of my all of a sudden rather quiet garden where I get the fright of my life coming face to face with a headless pigeon and a Sparrowhawk scarpering up the trees and over the off it went and I just filled up the feeders then got my capture camera set up to hopefully catch it when it came back for its meal as I couldnt get a clear view from the window as it was behind 2 nets and under the hours past and got some little birds in and out the garden...

    Then come about 3pm and I could see movement in the distance...sorry the pictures are not great

    I even crept outside down on my knees in the puddles to try get a decent picture!

    and from my capture camera when it finally flew off

    Hopefully thats it "fedup" for a few days so my other featherd friends can eat in peace!

  • Good pics Linda, glad the Sprawk came back to finish off it's dinner, your capture camera has picked up some clear shots not sure about getting down on knees, don't think I'd have made it back up again:-)

    Lot to learn

    Thanks Gaynors , I also have a hundreds of pics of nothing as the camera was attached onto the net and blowing about daft so glad I got a couple of clear shots!

  • Well captured on camera Linda and also pleased to hear the Sparrowhawk returned to finish its meal. Very impressed with your efforts to bring us these photos - not sure my knees could withstand crawling too far on the ground and through puddles so well done !

    Thanks Hazel, I felt the bird was laughing at me so I was determined not to disturb it (again) and get a clear shot. Am still young enough to crawl about the ground

  • A good idea to add to an existing thread, and some brilliant photos Linda.
