Sparrowhawk (My garden)

It is sitting in nearly the same spot as before, it is so surprised he didn't catch anything. The local council are going to chop down the trees, so they can build more houses, what a disaster.

Blackbird (Cyril Hart Arboretum)

As you have learnt by now, that the wrong title of the Feral Pigeon, which out to be the Stock Dove and the Field Horsetail was in the last listing. Lewis Thompson was that person, thanks to him. I will not get it wrong with this bird.....................................

Stock Dove (Cyril Hart Arboretum)

I stayed at home for most of the day, waiting for the post. You never know when they are to come. Still, it arrived at 11am, rather early! Just enough time to go and shoot some photos.

Brambling (New Fancy)

I took this bird inbetween showers. A poor lot.................... In a short visit, I gave up and off back home.

Ist winter Lesser Black-backed Gull (Lydney)

I went to the Forest this morning, but it looked bad, so I turned back to Lydney boating lake and saw this creature. Nice too!

Mandarin Duck (male) at Mallards Pike

In it's full plumage, getting ready to make a number of ducklings. They were introduced to the UK from China and have become established following escapes from captivity. Haven't they come far!

Siskin (New Fancy)

It was windy and blew the gravel (that's what it seems), all over the camera. This is a bad day, there wasn't a Hawfinch. There were Siskins, Goldfinches and Bramblings but no Hawfinches. Oh well, I shall have to wait.

Great Grey Shrike (Boys Grave)

A bit far away, I am sorry about that, and I am playing with my camera. I shall work it out in a couple of days, I think!

Chiffchaff (obscured by the trees) at Lydney marshes

I didn't go up to the Forest today and stayed at Lydney, and you know, there was 5+ Tree Pipit found at New Fancy. Well, you know what I was thinking, I am a ***********

Mandarin Duck (female) at Cannop Ponds

I saw my first Wild Boar, yippee, but I wasn't ready for it, I didn't have my camera set up. But, it was beautiful, truly beautiful. He was stood behind a gate watching some lady with three dogs, I think that's why he was so interested. But, I am so jubilant.

Spring is here

Spring is a beautiful thing, the dawn of a new year. I had too much to do in the morning, indeed, I was waiting for the post to be delivered, something good! Something about my camera..................

Greylag Geese (Cannop Ponds)

I like this one, every year it's here. It comes right up to you, possibly if you have some food.

Adder (New Fancy View)

Busily sunning himself
He was yawning, no problem!
The next picture is behind wire meshing

I have been waiting a while, to get a picture, in fact I got another 30. It was nice. Today, I had in mind to see the Adder and the Great Grey Shrike, and I got it right. I saw the GGS at Boys Grave, but it was too far away for pictures. But that was really good.

Mistle Thrush (Lydney)

Today was not bad, a bit blowy and sunny in the afternoon. I saw the first this season, the Chiffchaff, Little Egret came flying above me, Willow Warbler and the Peacock butterfly. Pretty good eh!

Goldfinch (My garden)

I didn't see much on my trip around the Forest of Dean, so, I came back to my home, where I took this Goldfinch.

Thursday 12 March 2009

Treecreeper (Cyril Hart Arboretum)

It was quite a miserable day, cloudy, not even a glimmer of sun. You would rather have some rain, so there was something you could do, like go shopping, or do something on the computer. But no, its a dismal outlook. I did photograph this beautiful birds!

Wednesday 11 March 2009

Dunnock (Lydney)

A Dunnock moderately high in the trees. Its song is melodious, a pleasant noise to listen to.

Tuesday 10 March 2009

This is a "no go with pictures", it is the day when I took my car to get it serviced. It is a Mobility car, the best thing that has happened to me. I am too poor to go out and buy one. Along with its attractions, ie a driving ball to help me and its a left foot for the automatic gears. I can go anywhere, with the the trailor for my buggy. It is wonderful. Anyone should try them, if you are disabled.

Stock Dove (Cyril Hart Arboretum)

They are really alright, a breed on its own. It is the most secretive and harder to get a good photo of. I know, but, I've been after this bird for a number of years.

Mediterranean Gull (Lydney recreation ground)

I was quite pleased to get this one, it was a bit too far away, but I photographed it. It was with the Black-headed Gulls which overcame it a bit.

Mute Swans standing on their heads (Lydney pool)

They are looking for some hidden treasure, it is close to shore!!!!!!!!!!
Hello, I seem to have lost my pal.

Ah, of course, he must have drifted off, now he's back again.

Friday 6 March 2009

Great Spotted Woodpecker (female)

I saw this one at Cannop Ponds, she was feeding on a fat ball. It was only a small fat ball, but that was nothing for the woodpecker.

Moorhen (Lydney)

Cor, it was cold today, well at least I did. If you want to, you can go on and see my other website.

Wednesday 4 March 2009

Hawfinch (New Fancy View)

At last, I came within two metres of this beautful creature. This one is a male, which I haven't photographed before.

Tuesday 3 March 2009

Cormorant (Lydney)

It was raining for most of the day, which made me go out at the best time of the day and photograph this one.

Sunday 1 March 2009

Juvenile Herring Gull (Lydney)

A juvenile Herring Gull, about 2nd years old. And, a beautiful day. So good, you would expect brilliant photos, but not a flaming thing of it. I was having a day off, I'll try later!
