|A typical marshland swim, on a tiny drain, in the middle of nowhere!|
|Very common sight around the marsh. This was taken using the Fuji Finepix 3200 at extreme distance.|
It's OK for blogging, but not up to the standard that the Canon and big lens could provide.
Right place, wrong camera?
|Only when I looked at this image did I realize that the lawn was in desperate need of cutting.|
The task has now been undertaken and the grass is much more presentable.
I managed to get a series of images of the birds, as they searched the lawn for seeds. I use the sweepings from my aviary to scatter around the grass and it is this which must be catalyst for this gathering? I later spoke to a neighbour, Liz, who also reported 100+ sparrows around her feeding station recently. As I mentioned in a previous post - House Sparrows around Thanet are certainly doing very well, in 2017, and worthy of celebration.
