Well I've been taking a little blogging siesta while I completed my university dissertation but I've been encouraged by my family and headbanger friends to start blogging again so here I am back at the computer and back out with the camera, now that I've finished the dissertation and it is all handed in. Well the first one the course I am doing requires two so I have another one to do before I finish in the summer.
This weeks theme was therefore given to me to choose. As it was the big garden Birdwatch in the UK recently I decided what better than to go for "garden birds" it would also give me a chance to test out my new lens that I got the 150-500mm F5-6.3 APO DG OS HSM from Sigma.
First I put some food out for the birds some apple for the blackbirds this one seems a greedy one and is taking a couple of pieces at once.
Some fat balls for the Blue tits.
Seed for the Chaffinches
Even the Robin showed up for some seed.
I was trying to get some of the birds actually in flight coming into the feeders which proved trickier than I hoped but I did get a couple of shots.
The header shows a full house on one of the feeders, they were and still are seemingly very hungry birds.
Have a look to see what the other headbangers have devised for their take on "garden birds" just follow their link in my right hand menu bar.
