We seem to have an abundance of sparrows up here this year. It's causing the odd punch-up on the bird feeders:
Though some species do manage to share it in peace:
Fortunately the hooded crow hasn't tried to hop on yet - he nearly breaks the fence, so I dread to think what he'd do to the feeder:
I'm trying to make more time for photography in my life, so yesterday morning I went down to the beach for an hour before breakfast, hoping to see the otter. This was the best picture I got during that time:
Not encouraging!! But today I went to the puffinry at Drumholistan and got some of my best pictures to date, which cheered me up no end:
I was amazed how close they let me get - apart from the first picture with just the puffin's head in it, these are uncropped photos.
