I do not often get the chance to photograph birds close up but recently I had an opportunity to do so. Here are some photographs:
The Great Spotted Woodpecker is a striking black and white bird with a touch of red on the back of the head.
The Blue Tit is a small bird common all over the UK.
Chaffinch is a common, often tame finch found in gardens, woodland and parks .
The male Chaffinch is much more colourful than the female.
Blackbirds have a beautiful song and can be heard early in the morning.
Mallard Ducks are common ducks in the UK.
