The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.
I filled our bird feeders the other day and vowed to try and get some pictures.
The theory was that I’d be able to improve my skills and experiment with the remote camera.
You’ll recognise immediately that my skills haven’t had much success but I had to share the goings on.
The photo makes it hard to pick our in recognition of cheffies bionic eye sight and the peckers hiding skills. And of course in recognition that I was in the wrong room with the wrong equipment when the bird was noticed!
Then the same day in the back yard. This little fella took advantage of the same lack of readiness.
It’s the Dunnock we saw often last year but who hasn’t been seen lately.
Very sweet and brave. The crows seem to rule in the back yard normally.
Meanwhile the feeders have their normal green ringed visitors but they are evading the camera most of the time.
And of course light is becoming an issue.
I still need to figure out how to get the smaller birds but I’m working on it.
