History
16 Sep 2006. Images moved from photobucket.com to Barbel Angler webspace.
22/23 May 2007. Tidy up. Some photos too large. Reduced in size. Discussion on digital cameras - posts now in seperate thread.

Male (Drake) Mallard. Albert Watkinson.

From Albert - "Thank you lads for showing the mallard. I was sat there minding my own business and he came stomping toward me. Hey I'm no Bailey"


Image


From John (EXTEST) - "Nice to see a true Mallard. I see so many crossbreeds these days especially on the Kennet at Rainsford and on the river Test. I do worry sometimes about what effect this will have, in time with the true Mallard population. I've not noticed the same thing happening with Widgeon, Teal, etc."

Did a lot of gardening the weekend and the robin's were very active in the freshly dug flower beds after worms and grubs. I left the fork in the ground and very soon one of them started using it for a perch. I set up the digital camera and took some shots through my binoculars. I was rewarded with this photo. Roy Young.

"It was like jungle warfare trying to get that little Warbler. It sang it's heart out all day long in the middle of a really thick weedbed. Everytime I got close it would just move deeper into the reeds. I must get a camera with a proper zoom so I can match some of the other photos on here." Denis (lobworm57)

This photo was taken the day before the baby blue tits left the nestbox in our garden. They were really noisy and one of them kept looking out of the hole to be first in line for food. After several attempts I managed to get this photo of one of the parents about to feed a little green caterpiller to the demanding chick. Roy Young

I had Kestrels nesting in my garden this year. (ColR)

Image


Just before they finally left the nest..........

Image

In the end we counted four chicks, all of whom eventually fled the nest. It was very pleasant in the evening watching the parents flying in and out of the nest with voles and mice. Mind you whilst they were around there was not a lot of other birdlife in the garden !!
