The weather has taken a turn to the warmer and with a little sunshine it seams to have given a lift to the birds in my garden So I grabbed the camera and took some pictures of the birds for an hour or so, it was very busy and hectic with birds coming and going at great speed, chasing and charging around. Is this the start of the spring coming in?
Its at this time that my garden bird workshops start, the resident birds in and around my garden are great spotted woodpecker, nuthatch, tree creeper, all the common tit species as well as the long-tailed tit. We also have a sparrowhawk that visits the garden from time to time and with luck we can get pictures of it.
The workshop lasts for three hours and we discuss techniques of taking pictures at close quarters going through exposure and exposure compensation in various lighting conditions
