After a long spell of rain it was time for a walk to the hide, very quiet still but on the way i did notice a Blackbird with worms in its bill. So it looks like the quiet spell is due to the fact that all the adults are very busty feeding the young in the nest. I arrived at the hide and after a short while my first sighting this year of a pair of Red Legged Partridge. A small bird like Pheasant but a lot smaller, with lovely colour’s but sadly i could only get an image of the head of one.
The feeding time is a very difficult time for the adult birds and the feather condition can be seen on the second image in this post of a Great Tit coming in to the hide for food for its young. On my way back from the hide i came across a Pied Wagtail Black and White and looking a bit scruffy so most likely another adult. The Blackbird looked amazing on the mossy wall as i approached our van and high up on a Pine tree a Mistle Thrush sang away calling to the female.
This is my 5th year doing the Blog for the site and this year i decided to try and get different postures of birds instead of just sitting on a branch so the little Robin is a good example and the detail is amazing form my New Olympus Camera amd Lens.
