Some Garden Visitors ...

Good Morning!
Over the past week or so I have managed to get a few snaps of the garden birds that visit my garden.
The first up was a very fluffy Greenfinch, we usually have a few of them visiting our feeder or sitting on the Apple tree.


Even in windy weather there's always time for a quick snooze ...

Next up is a fluffy Sparrow sitting on a branch behind the Greenhouse ...

Lastly is a Thrush which has only been visiting for the month, it always enjoys picking up the fallen seeds and collecting ants ... not forgetting having a bath in the bowl of drinking water left for all of the visitors. It was post bath time that I managed to take the photo's shown below ...







We're also treated to visits from Goldfinches, House Martins, Starlings and of course ... Pigeons!

Thanks for taking a look,

Bempton Cliffs ...

Good Afternoon!
It's been 2 months since I last updated this blog, goes to show how much work gets in the way of being able to venture out with the camera!
 Luckily I had last weekend off so on Sunday I visited RSPB Bempton Cliffs to try and see the Puffins, I wasn't disappointed. Here are my favourite snaps from the mornings visit.

Razorbill & Guillemot

Of course the main attraction of the day, Puffins!



Of course the plants person in me couldn't resist taking a snap of the flowers growing along the cliff top ...

Followed by some photo's of Gannet's 


These were actually building a nest close by the top so both me and my Father managed to get some lovely views of the birds close up, getting a picture of them in flight however proved rather tricky!

Finally here is a snap of the cliffs, what started off as a cloudy day ended with bright sunshine!

Thanks for taking a look!
