  • Stumped

    A bold Robin and a very bashful looking Blue Tit perched on a tree stump in the woods at Strumpshaw Fen.

    E-30, 50-200 SWD, EC-14.

    Super captures - our birds seem to have deserted our garden this year; only the pigeons and an occasional great tit seem interested in our feeder.

      A lovely pair of - err - birds. (OK, I know only one's a Tit, but I had to put some innuendo in!)

        They are super shots Ron.
        I never tire of seeing your Robins with their frail-looking little legs and plump little bodies, and the back view of the tit showing the plumage is fab.
        I enjoyed seeing these two little characters.

          Nice shots, Ron.

          A stump at Strumpshaw Fen, bit of a tongue-twister, that. Try repeating it quickly.

          Ian, we are still getting loads of greenfinches, chaffinches, goldfinches, pied wagtails and great tits on the feeders, with robins, blackbirds, doves, pigeons and the occasional cock pheasant elsewhere in the garden. We don't see many sparrows nowadays.

            Don't know how I missed these, but glad to find them, they are delightful. Can you give me a Postcode for the fen, please, looks a nice place for one of our Photo Adventures
            The picture tells the story, great when you have a bad memory.DW.

                Many thanks for the kind comments. Here is the RSPB page for Strumpshaw Fen. The postcode is under the 'where is it' section.

                  Well within our sphere of operations, I am glad to say, will try to get down later in the year. We are both have slight mobility problems, is there seating dotted about?

                    Yes, there are benches located throughout the reserve. Actually the Reception hide is a good place to view from and many people venture no further than there. Word has got around now and Strumpshaw is much more popular now than it used to be, so it does get quite busy at the weekend. If you can visit on a week day it should be better.
