Feathered Friends

While not a committed ‘twitcher’ the waiting, watching and photographing of birds is very relaxing. For more information about our feathered friends visit the rspb wesite.

Some of my best pictures of our feathered friends have been taken in the garden using a few natural props. Use fallen branches from the park, positioned so the background is clean, and some food hidden out of sight to attract the birds! Not only is the use of old branches and logs cheaper than buying bird tables it makes the resulting photographs look more natural. Starlings are usually the most common visitors but I have also seen Sparrow Hawks, Blue Tits, Long Tailed Tits, House Sparrows, Robins, Blackbirds and Wrens, though I have yet to photograph them all!
