Bird weekly – Photo challenge – Birds perched on anything

The topic for this weeks bird weekly photo challenge is birds perched on anything.

Well our feeding station at the caravan seems to be a favourite for the birds to perch on these day, I remember when we used to get no visitors.

Starling on the feeding station
Blue tit on the feeding station
Wood Pigeon on the feeding station
Robin on the feeding station
House sparrow on the feeding station

The collared dove much prefers the TV aerial on the opposite caravan but has become slightly more adventurous.

Moved from the aerial to the railings of the veranda.

But then a little more adventurous in the places to perch as now they are trying their best to build themselves a nest on top of the light on the caravan veranda.

Robin perched in the tree.

Handy little perching place on the lake.

This seems to be a popular perching spot, what do you think?

Another popular perching place.

Bird weekly – Photo challenge – Birds with white feathers

Although I am slightly late for this weeks it is nice to get back to searching my photographs for pictures of birds, at the moment they still seem to be one of my favourite things to photograph even with a fear for them flying close to me. The topic for this weeks bird weekly photo challenge is birds with white feathers.

Swans

This has to be one of my favourite birds with white feathers, to me they are so graceful.

Trumpeter Swan
Mute Swan
Black necked swans

Seagull

This is probably one of the most common birds that I see were I live so it would be so wrong of me to not put at least one seagull picture in this blog. This one is one of the regular visitors to where I work (A school, so lots of possibilities of food dropped on the floor by the kids) they certainly like to get up close and personal.

The following images are those birds with flashes of white feathers somewhere on their body as opposed to being all white.

Pigeon
Duck
Moorhen
Chaffinch
