He looks a very old, wise Rook. A cracking picture Trevor.
I absolutely agree Trevor, such character! I believe they are very intelligent and it really does show.Gorgeous earlier photo of the Robin and glad to see the lovely capture of the Greenfinch too. Hope you see more of the 'native' in your garden this year.
Oh, the ravins - how solitary and then how they become groupies when road-kills are found. Great picture.
Thanks Keith. He does look as if he seen many moons pass.
Hi Jan.They do indeed have character. A good close up photograph definitely bring this out.Hopefully I can get a good shot of the Firecrest and emulate Angies photographs. They are very quick so it is not easy.I am sure a lot more of our garden natives will be gracing the pages of this blog in the coming months.
Hello Bill.Ahhh the Ravens. One of my photographic aims is to photograph this fine bird at close range. So far I have only seen them from a distance or on the wing. We live in hope..
