Oh ELLE, you make me laugh. You are not thick. I had no idea what it was and my husband was convinced it was a parrot looking through his binoculars Roll on the floor laughing Roll on the floor laughing , it was only when I got close enough to take a photo and then looked it up in my bird book at home that I guessed what it must be. We'll be thick together Laughing

Little bit of late news. Visited a friend today who stilll had birds nesting. Arrived to find it was a nest of great tits, and the chicks obliged for photographs by popping up for me. So happy to have been there to have seen them before they fledged.

And if that wasn't excitement enough, a blue tit fledgling decided to join in the party. Really good day.

Superb pictures Sue the light and composition is gorgeous, which there were more months in the year if you know what I mean! I think we are all feeling at a loss for want of nest action!

Keep these for 2019 calendar if we do one cos my pics will be rubbish! Roll on the floor laughing

Aw thanks Paul, and Kathy. Was lovely seeing them. Paul, if I don't have a nest myself next year I might take you up on your offer Roll on the floor laughing Roll on the floor laughing Roll on the floor laughing but you had better have a nest with Rosie in it Laughing
Kathy, you must be a glutton for punishment thinking of a 2019 calendar Laughing

Well Sue, I can't promise you a nest off Rosie. However they should be a few nests on the go if the last 2 years is anything to go by Laughing is that good enough? Surprised

Hi Sue
You are such a great photographer. Maybe you could run a hints and tips post Very Happy . My hubby and I always have a laugh when we go through our old photos (in the days when you had to wait for them to be developed Very Happy ) we have so many photos of trees where there was a bird the moment before Roll on the floor laughing Roll on the floor laughing For our retirement pressie we have promised ourselves a 'proper' camera...so will definitely need help then Very Happy
And yes Rosie just has to have a nest in Paul's garden next year. Is she getting any less pink Paul?

Hi Sammi, thanks for the compliment. It is not deserved. I just point and shoot. No good asking my advice cause it's just patience and luck. I also remember having to wait and see what you'd captured on your photos (unless you were lucky enough to have a Polaroid lol)., and most photos were a real disappointment. No going back and trying again then, AND it was expensive what with buying films 24 or 36 frames and then developing and printing costs. How things have evolved! My love for photography came from my older brother (unfortunately he died at age 35), he made his own darkroom and did all his own developing and printing. I was never interested then but now I enjoy it probably more than he did cause at least we can take far more photos these days and know we can delete and start again. I often wish I'd had the chance to share some of this enjoyment with him. Some of my old black and white ones have the subject as tiny dots - no zooming in on things then, you were lucky to ever being close enough to get much wildlife. Anyway enough reminiscing.
Paul, ok , guess a few nests will suffice Roll on the floor laughing Roll on the floor laughing One day I WILL get one of my own in my camera box that I can actually see please Laughing

Oh Sue so sad to lose your brother at such a young age. His love for photography lives on in you though and you certainly do his memory proud (that doesn't sound like good English but you know what I mean) It is the sharing of the little things that makes us miss those we've lost isn't it.
I'll keep practising pointing and shooting Very Happy and maybe one day I'll do our feathered friends justice Roll on the floor laughing
