Pennington Flash

Another weekend visit to Pennington Flash, and more great birds to see. It really never disappoints. Below are some birds I found at the Bunting Hide where seed is put out regularly and the birds visit frequently. It's always great to see the birds at close quarters. You can watch habits and see who doesn't like who. Which ones like to perch and which ones prefer to do fly by.

Willow Tit on tip toe.


Nuthatch


Bullfinch. (Now, is that not just a little too big for you?)

  6. These are wonderful shots. I'm not a birder by any means but I've tried to take pictures of them and it takes a lot of patience to get shots as good as what you have.

  10. Nice set of pictures - Is PF one of the places that have gained Nuthatch in the past 20 years - I know that they have been expanding north. Even in the few years I lived in Cumbria they become more common.

    I have posted a bird you may like from Dubai - but my advice would be to go in the winter!

    1. Stewart, yes I believe the Nuthatch is not a particularly common species at PF, but these guys do seem to be spreading out pretty well at the moment.
