    1. It's amazing what you can see and hear if you just give yourself a moment.

  3. I don't think I have seen any here, then again I have been mistaking the Siskins for Greenfinches.

    1. They were so energetic and happy it was incredibly hard to get photos...for a while I thought maybe the first one was going to be as good as it was going to get!!

  5. I wonder if they choose trees with yellowing leaves on purpose? Good job spotting them.

  9. It's satisfying when you're able to get some good pics of a group of birds. The yellow hammers have lots of good cover probably eating from dry seed heads. It's nice to hear them as well as see them. Our blackbird(s) have eaten all the grapes on the vines on our dry stone wall in the front garden. Obviously here in the UK there are only a few bunches with small, unripe grapes so we leave them for the birds. Mr. Blackbird is too quick for me to get a shot, although usually friendly when hopping about listening for worms in the lawn.

    1. I do think the Yellowhammers have a lovely some Linda.
      I have grapevines on my allotment which I planted more to mark the boundary than anything else and every year I leave the fruit for the birds to feast on!!
