These Starlings I photographed on our town hall clocks' weather vane at dusk.
These were only the first to arrive, 15 minutes later it was shoulder to shoulder all up the wires and on the vane but , just too dark to take a photo.

This little young water rail, ( correct me if I'm wrong), stayed in the willow bush not 8ft away from me while I was fishing. When it matures it will be far more secretive.

Image



Best wishes---John.

PS. I have seen it today and it is developing it's plumage.
I now believe it to be a young moorhen,---Could be wrong,??--John.

This noisy little fellow I photographed at some distance, on top of a plum tree at Rainsford.
A bit indistinct as I had to get the shot in quickly (didn't stay in one place for long).

It has a blue back so not a Ring-neck Parakeet. Any ideas? John Perry (EXTEST)

While I was having breakfast this morning, this male Sparrow hawk had taken a sparrow from one of the bird feeders, I grabbed my wife's Canon SLR and took this photo through the window, it's a bit blurred the windows need a clean. Ron Chant

This Robin landed on my rod several times today and waited while I took my camera from my pocket.

I'm really pleased with the result. Micky Holtom (Kingfisher II)

Peregrine Falcon perched on the ledge on the west face of the BT building in Newbury - taken today at around 3:00pm. Judging by the size of it, I'd say it was a female. Roy Young

I took this photo a while ago, it appears to be a Kingfisher asleep in a bush. I was in the process of placing my bait out under a bush when I spotted this little fella asleep!

Our local farmer is a bit of a conservationist and put's boxes all around his land.
This one is in a barn and at one time had 6 youngsters, there are now 5, 4 in the picture the 5th left and was up in the rafters.

Don't know what it is, but seen this a few times flying over padworth.

Ian Crook - It's a Red Kite, there are hundreds around these days..........

Fred Bonney - I'm not convinced, could be a buzzard ,underwings too light for a kite!

Ian Crook - Must admit it's tail looks a little odd, normally flat to a slight inwards V but it is definitely a kite............

Ian Crook - Fred, you are absolutely right, I did some digging around the net after my initial response as the tail did not look like the forked tail of a Kite and realised it is actually a Buzzard............was kinda hoping no-one would spot my error but we can't get anything past you..........

Fred Bonney - Oh yes you could.  I had just seen one on my way home, a red kite that is, over the A1 at Stamford and had been watching a buzzard earlier.
The V wedged tail on the kite is a definite giveaway.

Tom Herbert (Lord Drool) - Loads of common buzzards around nowadays, to think twenty or so years ago you would be lucky to see one.
Ian, I was watching three Red Kites wheeling above the Marsh the other day, they have a more pronounced forked tail to the buzzard.

By 'eck there are some talented photographers on here! Sadly, my photographic prowess is even below the level of my angling skills, if that's possible Image  However, having seen some of these lovely shots, I am inspired to have a go....though I am not sure that my ancient Canon compact I use for fishing is really up to it...especially as it probably has spider webs on it by now Image  Never mind....watch this space!

Cheers, Dave.
