28 April 2013 At My Hide

29th April 2013
As the weather forecast for Sunday was rain, I wasn’t really expecting to get out with the camera but when I got up it was quite bright.

After breakfast I went to my hide in the hope that I’d get a few more birds visiting the feeders than I did last week.


There were definitely more birds around even if they were the usual suspects but because the feeders and perches are close to the hide, you can get frame filling photographs easily.


Robin, Blue & Great Tit, Greenfinch, Chaffinch, Goldfinch and Dunnock were frequent visitors a Wren was also around but kept out of sight. I also had the first Collared Dove to visit.


The Tree & House Sparrows appear to have disappeared as I’ve not seen any for a few weeks


There were plenty of Swallows flying around and I could hear a Skylark but I couldn’t see it.

I’m pretty sure I also caught sight of a Goldcrest, whatever it was it was very small and not a Wren but it stayed in the trees and didn’t give a clear view.

There were also a couple small birds flying around that didn’t stay still long enough to get a clear view of them but at a rough guess based on the colour and size I’d say Willow Warbler.

Thanks for reading.
