A weekly series when I revisit old photographs

2 birds in flightLast weekend was annual Garden Birdwatch survey in UK, the idea being to allocate 1 hour over the weekend and count all the birds in the garden during that time. Results are then sent to Royal Society for Protection of Birds who collate all data to provide a snapshot of garden bird activity and populations.

Unfortunately, the time we had allocated for this last Sunday coincided with the heaviest rains and the strongest winds of the weekend giving us a grand total of Nil, Zero, Zilch, Nothing. So this photograph from a few years back is what I definitely didn’t see. (This was take in the days when I regularly carried around a camera with a very heavy lens, and also had reflexes fast enough to capture birds in flight).

Now birds is something I have trouble with. I know how, but I can never seem to catch the right frame. I blame the birds of course This is such a great shot!

    Thanks. I must say being retired means having enough time to while away the time in a bird hide. Lol

What an amazing picture! Simply gorgeous.

thanks, also, for the idea of a Throw-back photo post. I have been wondering how I could incorporate pictures and stories from past travels/tastings/creative projects on this very new blog. I think you have just told me how. Just brief snippets with one or two pictures.

    Thank you. Like you, I wanted to revisit old pictures and use them just when I felt like it. It’s always fun looking through them!
