A small selection of feathered friends that passed my lens during the year

Little...the Wren is one of our smallest birds and rather unobtrustive as it prefers undergrowth and hedgerows. Fortunately it's very vocal and the unobserved bird is often easily detected.


A proud looking adult male Green Woodpecker, often heard but not so easliy seen... of its young offspring investigates a tree...


...while another one tucks into one of its favourite meals, ants collected on its long sticky tongue.


The shy but distinctive Jay. Less than an hour after photographing the Woodpeckers the Jay appeared in the same tree above, harried by Magpies I managed three frames before it was chased away.
