Beautiful pictures, John. I do like to see reed buntings.
Hi Emma,There was a few hunting around in the undergrowth on the ground, lovely to watch them. Starlings are stunning birds when you take a good look at them.CheersJohn
I've always liked Starlings, John. They're such colourful birds. I've never seen a Reed Bunting before - what a fantastic little bird, the markings are just perfect!
Great shots John, especially the Starlings.John
Cracking photos, I love how the dots of the Starling is showing really nicely.Michelle
Thank you for the praise guys,Lesley,Get a nice bit of light on a Starling and voila! Usually overlooked by birders but i think they are characters, always up to something. The Reed Bunting is quite a common bird usually associated with water. They can usually be seen right at the top of reeds although the few i saw were on the ground.John,I think the CANON and light should take most of the plaudits.Michelle,There is a nice mix of "texture" with the dots. But to be honest, while i was capturing them it was the brilliant colouration of the wings that was catching my eye.Thanks allJohn
Lovely pics of both the Reed Bunting and the Starling Johnny, Linda
Thank you Linda, much appreciated.John
