Just caught this little fellow from six feet after hiding between two garden sheds. Grabbed, literally, with K7 and 50-135mm. He saw me and was off just as quick as he landed!




C&C welcome.

thats better a clean feeder is good for the birds, dirty feeders leeds to finch disease, and it isnt nice seeing them with it a friend had a few that had it coming in his garden(only thing to do is take the feeders away to stop it spreeding.

Don`t think the little fella is worried about the state of the feeder,just as long as it`s got some grub in it..he he he.

Having said that...and not wanting to put the dampers on things...one wonders if feeders pose the same threat as the common bird bath.

Not new, just a good scrub down with a sponge and detergent!
