Some more birdscaping
A baby Moorhen at Onuma last summer, uncropped to show off its habitat.
I still have gout problems and am housebound, it's stinking hot and the construction noise is about 10 or so metres away..................no going out for walks in the day and no cold beer in the evening makes me a right grumpy basta*d I can tell you.
I dug out some more 'birdscape' photo from the previous 2 summers. All the photos are uncropped, like I said in my last post they suffer a little composition-wise as the birds tend to be dead centre (I wasn't anticipating birdscape type pics when i took them).
The Moorhen above was from July 2009, here is are some Little Ringed Plovers, the adult is from 2008 and the chick (it is there if you look closely) from 2009.
And here's a Night Heron poking its head up in a padi field last year.
Early last August the Red Necked Stints reappeared on the beaches, these are adults and were much shyer than the juveniles which pass through later and are much more approachable.
Thanks for clicking this link.
Hopefully I'll be up and about soon. At least my gout has struck at the worst time of year birding-wise...........
Joe Cole eh? Interesting................
