Knowing from past experience that Blackbirds like to eat apple I chopped a windfall in half and put it out over a week ago. Finally this morning a male Blackbird decided to help itself. Rather grainy photos as it was early, poor light and the 50D was set to ISO 3200 to obtain a reasonable shutter speed.
Having invested in a Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 mobile phone which has an 8Mpixel camera these are a couple of the first test shots as taken with no processing.
Are we going walkies or are you going to fiddle with that phone all afternoon?
Great all round phone but very battery hungry!
The Great Tit has just arrived in the nestbox, and fluffed itself out ready to roost there for the seventh night running.
