Fairburn Inges

Common Sandpiper(I Think)

Spring has arrived, it was a lovely day today and the birds were busy building nests. I visited the local RSPB centre and spent an hour snapping away. However it doesn't matter how big a lens you have you still want to be closer.

Blue Tit
Mute Swan
Long Tailed Tit
I also saw my first butterfly of the year.

Rainy , cold days!

Wonderful images and great close up to that amazing bird!
My regards!

I love the shot of the Blue Tit and the whole series of shots are lovely! We're still buried in snow here and will be for a while longer.

Your camera lens did get you quite close to your "photo-prey" -- The blue tit shot is my favorite for the expression you captured!
