When Spring comes, will some more species come up from the south?

Not a partridge in a pear tree, but nice to look at anyway. smiley - smiley

Just wondering: Do partridges eat pears?

(Alan might)

This tree is a birch, so no pears.

You've managed to photo a good number of birds of different species. smiley - biggrin

I usually do the RSPB (Royal Society for the Protection of Birds) big birdwatch in January. This year, my count was well down from previous years.

Birch rhymes with perch. smiley - winkeye

Recovering from flu, I found that the best place was against the radiator in front of the kitchen window. Those are the times you appreciate a 1200mm equivalent lens most. It beats the 48 megapixel smartphone camera.

To get this collage, I stitched up all the individual photo's (mostly one for each bird). Most work went into getting the sky in the same blue colour across the picture and filling the blank areas with branches.

Excellent indeed - great way to illustrate the variety of birds you saw in an hour. Glad you were nice and warm while you were watching them smiley - ok

I did the RSPB birdwatch as well. Not many of each, but I was pleased to see more than 5 different species in the hour, as I was only expecting to see house sparrows!

Yesterday I saw a congregation of twelve magpies in one tree. Apparently that means wealth in the magpie rhyming world.

Next time, you can hope for four and twenty blackbirds, baked in a magpie. smiley - winkeye
