We’re still under fairly strict restrictions here so I’ve been enjoying watching the garden birds.

I think the dunnock and robin are juveniles? They look very fluffy. This little one is having a stretch before settling down for a sunbathe.

The adults are keeping up their energy levels with plenty of seeds and nuts.

Lots of tasty insecty type treats to be found in the shrubs and plants

#SundayStills ~ #Straight Lines Created by Man and #Nature #Bird #Ocean #Photography #Church #Scenery

Welcome to the Sunday Stills feature created and hosted by Terri Webster Schrandt 

The theme for Sunday Stills this week is ‘straight’. The first thing that came to mind was the horizon and, although we know it’s not actually straight, it looks that way to us.

The angle of the sun is casting shadows in straight lines across this wooden walkway.

The Red Arrows display team are leaving perfectly straight smoke trails.

A suspended bridge looks fairly straight…until you walk on it! Especially if someone behind you starts making it sway!

The back of the bench provides a handy perch for a little dunnock.

From My Window #Photography #Birds #Nature

I haven’t seen a wren for such a long time, it was a treat to see this one collecting nesting material.

This dunnock framed himself perfectly in the lattice fencing

I know there’s something down there!

Going for the above ground option

I cheated for this one and stepped outside. The raven is still hanging around the rooftops.

Back Garden Birds

After months of storms it was lovely to watch the birds enjoying some long awaited sunshine, especially as we’re confined to quarters at the moment.

The blue tits are nesting in the bird house and enjoying the cherry blossom.

Maybe the robins are nesting nearby too, although I haven’t seen any evidence of it, except that they’re around a lot, which is lovely.

I’ve haven’t noticed these little dunnocks before, they flit about so quickly it took patience and a hefty dose of luck to capture them standing still.
