For the duration of this notice, unless otherwise stated, all images have been trawled from my photographic archives... 2020 was not my most prolific camera year, so have some catching up to do!!!

YAM's take on the good, the bad, the ugly and the downright hilarious in photographing birds.


Another of my archive pics of the Jackdaw pair. I wonder if I will see them before I fly off to OZ next Tuesday? I can't help but feel they may have found new territory.

Crazy winter weather gave us some amazing warm-temp days in among the freezers. Result, some fascinating play of light.

Another view from the ship rather than to one... well, a ferry anyway. Leaving Hunter's Quay behind, looking up the Holy Loch towards Ben More.

Another magpie - for David, who likes them "all day long" 😊

Joanne asked about the negative impression perceived about magpies. It may come from the rhyme, where certain numbers of them are said to bring 'bad luck'... 

Meanwhile, back in reality, they are scavengers and predators, they are omnivorous so eat berries and other vegetation, as well as bugs of all varieties, small rodents, and are known to take eggs and chicks of other birds (though this could be said for many corvids also). Non-breeding birds will flock in quite large numbers. They are very noisy (squawk and croak) and can be quite belligerent. All this may add up to a less than favourable view of the bird. Think a gang of teenagers with too much time on their hands!

Gotta love a tug called "Resourceful"!







(This was taken with the new pocket camera - see 'Tools' update - and it has a distinctly blue cast to the images. Am on a learning curve with it before the big trip Downunder... it's so much lighter and easier to pack than the Fudge...)

Lacking live critters, one has resorted to the modelled variety! A balsa root hosts two birds of indistinct heritage. It was a gift to my father from a neighbour at Christmas.
