Had a visitor today.

Funnily enough, lots of our regular visitors declined to visit while she was here.....

Twas unusually quiet in our back garden recently, then whilst in the kitchen, out of the corner of my eye, saw something in the water fountain, It saw me at the same time but due to being soaked it had to make a run for it on foot, Caught on the camera just before take off :)

I kind of thought that, but looking up a photo on t'internet to confirm my identification, that one was just the same. So it must be by design as it were.

I presume you know it is a she from the look on its face - the sort of look us blokes get when we get home after an evening with mates :D

Les, that thing is a fair bit bigger. Looks like a Buzzard to me? We see them above the house, but never in the garden. Scary, though.

Paul. Actually, it's the lack of a red/brown colouration, but I do see your point.... ;) (Runs for cover).

Splendid Pic Les.

BTW you put a full stop on the end of the URL which is why it didn't work out first time.

The bird in Pic one (top) is either in a draft thats lifting the odd few feathers, or the bird has fluffed them out on purpose in oder to lose some body heat...

Dave's bird.. (ooeerr Dave, Marina will killya) Is in very poor condition, normaly when a fit bird (ooeerr Mk2) has a bath very little water sticks to the feathers as they should be pretty weather proof...

I hate flying raptors, simply because I like lil song birds.. Though the biggest bird killers are cats................. grrrrrrr...
