Here are two photographs I have taken of birds in my garden
FLEDGLINGS ON MY FENCE
It’s nice to share my garden with wildlife. Especially the Hare, because I usually see hares in the distance a few fields away. It has been into the garden a few times and lays down on the grass just outside our window. It obviously does not know the difference between garden and countryside. Hopefully there isn’t one.
I took this photograph about a year ago. I remember these two young birds seemed to think my garden was their garden. I watched them from my kitchen window.
Wonder where they are now and also wondering if all the bird food they ate helped them survive.
Steve has kindly sent me this photograph of a robin. It is so clear – and I think the character of the robin shines through. Thanks Steve
Apologies for the lack of clarity in these photos, but it’s not often I see a hen pheasant, raven, woodpigeon, crow, blackbird and a rabbit sharing an early morning breakfast
First came the rabbit –
Then a blackbird joined the rabbit –
Now the party starts. A hen pheasant in the background. Next to it a Raven. Then a rabbit and a blackbird. Hen pheasant, Raven, Rabbit, Blackbird
Hen Pheasant, Crow, Wood pigeon, blackbird, rabbit –
Hen pheasant, raven and wood pigeon all eating the same grain. then a rabbit eating grass –
This was very early morning and we have had to take some old fencing down. This must happen every morning, but it is hidden from view by the fence.
They all meandered about together for about half an hour. The rabbit picked the freshes dandelion leaves.
It reminds me of when I used to go picking dandelions for our pet rabbit when Iwas about 6 years old. Now I remember picking dandelion leaves when I was six years old BUT what did I do yesterday!?
I will try and get better photos – but it’s hard.
