How charming these shots are David, I love to see the little birds but I have not managed to photograph any. I guess one needs lots of patience

Hi Trixie
Thanks for the praise but no, there wasn't any patience involved. But for my wife I would have missed them.
Yesterday it was a miserable day and raining hard when my wife called me to say there were Bluetit chicks on the feeders. They were fluttering about everywhere and I managed to count nine chicks. Then I managed to take some photos through the rain and the wet window. That's why some are a bit grey/blue tinted, but on the whole I'm pleased with them.
Please you like them.
Regards David

Lovely shots of these beautiful little birds, we've just got a nesting box with a camera in, hopefully next year we might possibly have some nesting in it!
Kind regards Maria

Hi Maria
Best of luck with the box camera, I've often wondered about them, problem is we have put boxes up all over and the only thing that uses them are bees. Mind you it would be interesting to watch them.
Kind Regards David

This one is my favourite of the three, lovely images all of them, but this one is so full of character.

Thanks to all for looking, I'm so pleased you liked it. It was only due to luck and a shout from wife that I got these and then it was through rain and a rain drenched window. I'm amazed they were worth keeping let alone worth showing. Aren't RAWs images and PSE brilliant.
Oh and David S, I've been looking at your foliopic.com gallery and they are fantastic, especially the Peak District and Scotland landscapes.
Kind Regards David
