Collecting photos of some of my garden visitors. Thought I would share them and add more as ||I get them. Isolation giving me more time!
Lucky the sparrowhawk hung around long enough for a few shots
Jay a regular visitor
Surprised the Fieldfare and Redwing are still in the garden
Low flying Buzzard
Couldn't resist tis one!
New to my garden (in 35 years) pair of Treecrepers
Very distant Red Kite
Lovely song thrush (which I mistook for a Mistle)
Now a few of the regulars:-
Thanks for sharing David, brilliant pictures and a nice variety of birds you get in the garden. I wish a Jay would visit mine
(Pardon the Scottish Accent)
Thanks Linda, very rural surrounded by fields so ever so lucky.
In fact just had a Red Kite fly over very low down. Not so common in Essex.
Problem with rural is i like the deer, but they like my shrubs and fruit trees!!

Lot to learn
A few more.
Finally managed to track down the Chiffchaff. Have heard them for a while but first real photo opportunity this morning.
Looks like we may be lucky enough to have a family of Mallards this year (happens occasionally)
We always have Moorhen on the pond, and in the garden all year.
Looks like the Blue Tits have found a good nesting hole, right in front of my kitchen window
so hope to see the fledglings.
How lovely to get a window view like that, I look forward to the photos David.
Today so far...….
My girls are also in isolation having lost one to a fox on Tuesday!
1st Blackcap. into the sun so hopefully better image to follow
