My Photographs for week ending 23 August 2015.

An exercise in a trial of alternative presentations of Blackbirds.

Four images of the Red-footed Falcon at Willow Tree Fen NR 19.08.2015. It's unfortunate that his back was towards me and head in the shadow but at least I got to see this rarity and grab a few shots in the 55 seconds he was perched nearby.

I asked the Grey Heron at Fiskerton Fen N.R. to show me some different poses.

Eating peanuts and sunflower-hearts makes the mouth dry.

'Food Aid' flight landing!

We've missed seeing them in our garden of late but three Long-tailed Tits visited us yesterday: let's hope they're back for the long term.

Great Tit.

They might not be the prettiest, or most colourful, of some birds but Gulls have a sleek, handsome look that gives an air of being aloof and arrogant. Black-headed Gull.

A Little Egret alone with its shadow.

 Starlings are head and shoulders above other birds for audacity.
