I was just setting up a different lens combination when I spotted a Sparrowhawk sat just past the end of my garden having a good look round.
Starlings can look so dull and uninteresting until the sunlight catches them to show how their feathers can be multi coloured.
One or two Dunnocks are regular visitors to the Birdy Bistro. Sometimes they visit the bird table but more often they are searching in the shadows. This was the first time I used a new tripod with a fluid head so it was in the way of being a test shoot.
Finally there is always fun and games when Greenfinches and Chaffinches want to use the same feeder.
Have a great weekend observing the wildlife around you.
