The other day,I was at my woodland hide. A robin was posing for the camera. Cracking little bird.
I had other birds too.
This morning, I went with some seeds at one of my feeding stations and came across another fox! It is easy to see them at the moment. I took this picture with my 500mm….I am lucky with foxes. I have to process all the pictures that I took in my woodland Hide. I had another fox there too. it came and took some peanuts that I placed on the ground,but it always was standing behind some of my perch….
Snow, glorious snow. At last some great weather.For me every time snow come down,it`s like Christmas .
The difficulty is to find out where to go. As you want to score on those special days.At the moment,I have four feeding stations going . One in a reed bed, one in woodland, one in open countryside and one more “Raptor” hide. That was the hide that was flooded. This morning I decide to go to the Raptor hide. I had a road kill with me. I arrive in my hide and after setting everything up I waited three hours….No Raptor in sight but my favorite mammal appeared. A magnificent red fox….I was lucky to see and photograph that special mammal. To photograph a fox is one thing but to photograph a fox in the snow is always very special. I have done it hundred time but it always thrill me to do it….In the afternoon I went to my woodland hide for another four hours…..
Yep, yesterday, the sun was shining.Not for very long but it was there.
At the moment there are waxwings all over the country. They must be thousands of them. Yesterday afternoon, I went to try photographing them.
I was with a group of about thirty waxwings. It was very nice to be able to take a few pictures of anything really. It is always very pleasing to photograph a very sexy bird.
Today, everything is back to normal….it`s raining! AGAIN
I don`t know about ringing birds but this one`s legs were coverered with rings….not very nice.
Also, they were some strange people trying to photograph those beautiful birds 🙂 let`s call them “the three amigo” 🙂
