    Oh ! There are some 'magical' pictures there
    Have you ever seen 'Life of Birds' with David Attenborough ?

    Hi Patsy,

    It's one of my favorites! The beauty and behaviors of the birds in this series is truly amazing. A must see.series! You've previously mentioned Wagtails. What are some of your other favorite birds from your area?

    @Tony Britton - I am so pleased you like that series, David is an exceptional presenter
    I also love the ocean creatures and his series 'Blue Planet' did not disappoint, hope you got to see that, the filming
    is, as usual - superb
    As for poor little me - the view from my window is a car park with a bit of green beyond, where the seagulls congregate
    then fly above us. My favourite birds that I can see and hear from the view, are blackbirds. Simply because they sing such
    a variety of song, unfortunately we don't see them as often now
    We also have the sight of magpies and pigeons - so not much - I need to move ! :D
    The wagtails I see, when I go out to do some shopping, they melt my heart :)

    I can't recall a nature documentary I didn't like! I own quite a lot of these and they're not only fascinating, they're inspirational from a photography perspective. Something to aspire to!

    All your photos are exceptional. If I took shots like this I'd be very proud of myself.

    Swans, what a delight they are :)
    You've captured stunning shots again - have you captured an Eagle yet ?

    Hi Patsy,
    No Eagle in the wild yet. Only captive.:( I do have a small collection of hawk photos, though!:)

    Here's a photo of a Heermann's Gull I hope you'll enjoy. The lovely color in the background was provided by Ice Plant. I enjoy photos with this type of "bokeh" background.

    What a regale profile, Tony! You're right, when we look over our shoulder, life can appear as a blur!;)

    Holly. Get yourself out to the Lea Valley park. Just beyond Chingford. You will see some amazing birds there. That's where I took my cormorant picture, posted elsewhere.

    Tony, I have but one comment about your exhibition:

    WHAT CAMERA DID YOU USE? I've never seen any photos sharper then yours!

    Hello,

    I haven't posted in quite a while. Hope you'll enjoy these! All wild, hand-held, no cropping.

    Hi Hal,

    All were taken with either my Canon SX40, which I no longer own, along with my Canon SX50 and Sony DSC-RX10M3, which I currently own.
