Home Patch (13): Robin and Greenfinch Again

I have not seen any new bird species in my home patch today ... thus far ... but one of the resident Robins was hopping about.


The Greenfinch was back ...


... and so was this bandy-legged Blackbird (somehow reminding me more of a Chough, in terms of his awkward camera pose!)


... but it was soon time to face me head on, and show off that tasty morsel of what I think was a snail, shell and all!


There were also four Swifts flying high overhead. This one swooped a bit lower than the other 34 or so ...

You got some lovely captures, especially of the blackbird.

Thank you for your comment on my blog. I have been spending some time with the templates. I thought the border would make my pictures stand out after seeing the same on another blog.:)
