February 2016 Redwing UK

Glad I managed to get am image of the Redwing before they depart for their breeding grounds in northern Europe. They are welcome winter visitors to the UK.

February 2016 Flock of Golden Plover in the winter sunshine. Cotswold Hills UK

These are really lovely birds that visit the Cotswolds in the winter.  It was great to stalk along the lane and get this shot over the hedge. Sometimes they seem to get down on mass and almost disappear from view.

February 2016 Green Sandpiper from earlier in the year

With the weather so dark and rainy over recent weeks I am still spending some evenings going over previously un viewed images. I liked the framing in this one with the shadow and the bird offset.

February 2016 Great Grey Shrike from Last winter.

These are great little predators that like to perch high up on trees and bushes watching out for any possible prey.

February 2016 Back to last summer. I am really missing some decent lighting!

It has been so murky lately that I thought I would look back through some images from last summer. Found this Roe Deer leaping through the ripe wheat.
