Something a little different, at least 10 herons in this photo.

A chiffer of chaffs.

Is it my imagination or is it taking a lot longer to download photographs of late??

If you have a blue tit nestbox camera - any action? As usual we had a bird roosting in the box over winter, some half-hearted nest building late April, a bit more last week and nothing since. The awful spring weather is really delaying things here (Shropshire).

Thanks. The cuckoo(Colin)is well known in the area but I went for the redstart that is often there so was really pleased with the outcome

Grainy image, as the light was fading fast, but this 'Little Owl' was 'locked on' to his target!

Tricky shot as was against the light but a reasonable outcome in the circumstances and a first for me smile

Brilliant.

I was attacked by a sparrowhawk when off-road cycling. It looked exactly the same as this little owl; out for blood.

Thanks for posting.

I'm desperately trying to get some decent photo's of a nesting pair of Hoopoo's in my garden. There are both feeding young now.
I was watching them this morning and the female was behaving unusual.
Then from round the back of the tree came a Pine Martin!
I managed to scare it off but it will be back tonight. Then minutes later another male Hoopoo turned up and started a fight with the other male!
I'm now worried for the young. They should be out soon and now it seems the female is standing guard,with just the male fetching food and passing it to her to feed them.
I will hopefully get some pics up later but I'm not sure how good they will be!

Here is the male. Poor quality. I'm worried about them now due to what I've seen today.

I have a female Blackbird in my back garden nesting in my Forsythia bush. Trying not to disturb her but she's very close to my kitchen door and garage side door.
