Blue Tit at New Fancy
It was a morbid day, no sun (there up in them there hills), sorry, I was saying it in broad Gloster. But I caught this in the morning.

Painted Lady and Red Admiral (Lydney, The Marshes)
Sunday, 25 October 2009
If you had been waiting for my blog, (unlikely), it was a showery day, and I couldn't take one. So, I have dipped into my past. The Owl is something called (wood owl) or I couldn't remember what it's called.

Great Spotted Woodpecker
It was full of showers, every time I started to take a picture, down it came stopping any photographing. Still its bound to stop! Well, I couldn't take one, so, here is one from the archives.

Blackbird (A day at The Marshes in Lydney)
Black, bold, a suggestion of dark
Places about it, there yet should come
Such rich music, as though the notes'
Ore were changed to a rare metal
At one touch of that bright bill.
You have heard it often, alone at your desk
In a green April, your mind drawn
Away from its work by sweet disturbance
Of the mild evening outside your room.
A slow singer, but loading each phrase
With history's overtones, love, joy
And grief learned by his dark tribe
In other orchards and passed on
Instinctively as they are now,
But fresh always with new tears.
A poem by Ronald Stuart Thomas

Hooded Vulture (ICBP)
That is the best looking of all the birds of prey? I took that one at International Centre for the Birds of Prey. It is an old photograph in June 2009; and it was drizzling here on October 15. What a load of rubbish I speak or write.

Grey Wagtail (Cannop Ponds to Boysgrave)
It was a superb day, sunshine everywhere. But, this was the only subject of the day, a Grey Wagtail. It was half hidden by the tree. Ah, I will get a better one.

Common Crossbill (Boys Grave, Forest of Dean)
The Common Crossbill has been on my blog before, but it looks better than the other one. This bird is so meticulous at feeding. He would go to a place where there is a pine cone, take it back to where he'd been the last time, and would eat the seeds from the cone. After which he would drop it. I hope that it doesn't drop it on somebody head!
This he will do it for a long time.

Here we are, not only is it raining, but it's blooming cold! But, at least I can enjoy myself with a picture of a Peregrine Falcon. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH that's better!
