My plan isn’t working! The idea was that now I’m working from home I would have more time to watch the birds in the back garden and I promised myself I would be posting on here every week- unfortunately it’s not turning out that way 🙁
So my new plan is to post at least twice a month instead AND I’ll try to be a bit more active on the blogs I follow (which I must admit I’ve not had time to visit for a few weeks now – sorry!)
So, my first post of August is about new birds in & above my garden – both seen this morning.
This young Pied Wagtail was taking a drink out of the guttering (even though there was a perfectly good bowl of water on the garden!)
The next 2 shots were taken after hearing a screeching above the garden – it was quite high up circling into the grey mist so photos are not very good – but it’s my first ones of a Buzzard (or at least I’m assuming it’s a Buzzard)!
I’ve also seen fleeting glimpses of a Willow Warbler in the hedge outside my office window so I’m hoping to have photos of that for my next post (whenever that may be!)
C’mon Sharron, Bugger the work get wildlifing!!!!
If only I could Warren! 😉
I think I’ve learnt that one can not really plan anything in terms of pictures and blog 😉 Whatever the number of post you will publish we will still be happy to follow you ;-)…
hope you like WordPress. So in a way you are swapping with Siobhan, who now is on Blogger!
Love your pictures again.
is your desk in front of a window? just place the camera in the window sill or desk, and whenever you look out, have the camera ready to take photos of those lovely birds!
I have my camera in my window where I work, and it is hard to keep focussed on work with all those wings flying about you, but do look out now and then!
You just need to find a new rhythm.
Hi Yoke – I’m sorry but I’ve only just seen your comment! Thanks for the advice – my desk is in front of a window but unfortunately it’s at the other side of the house away from the back garden & the bird feeders! I like your idea of keeping the camera in the window though – I might buy one of those window feeders just to see what I get at the front of the house. Do you work from home too then? I’m getting used to it now 🙂
