Blue tits on a wet, dark evening.

7th May 2012:I had another try at photographing the blue tits this evening. By the time I arrived at the south end of the marsh, the light was fading fast. The sky was black, and it was raining. Still, I managed to get a few images, even if they are a bit grainy.

The house martins were there in force too, but they were conducting their speedy aerobatics over the standing water this time – making the ducks duck (I expect Dezra will have trouble getting her mind around this).

The coots have chicks! I haven’t seen any ducklings yet. I think the swans have a nest in a flooded wood next to the scrap yard. There was only one swan swimming about this evening.

  1. Your perseverance is really paying off, Mike. I have a quirky passion for looking for “faces” in the most unusual places…did you happen to notice the face in the tree bark in the upper-right corner of your second photo (3300), looking down and over at your beautiful little bird?

    • Thanks, Gary. No, I didn’t notice the face. It might have been Vogel. 😉

    • I don’t see the face, Gary. Maybe you you should talk to a professional about seeing faces in unusual places – it worked for me! Ha! 😉

  2. HAHA! You definitely got me on this one! I’m still laughing. Ducks duck. Sheesh. 🙂

    Lovely photos also. I can get my mind around that, at least!

  3. wonderful images, the bird really stands out against the bright browns of the bark!
