    Thanks Josh - I like the water drips on the last one - the long tailed tits are my favourite just because they were so much of a challenge as they are tiny and they moved so flippin quick

    Oh please don't stop taking and sharing your photos! Herself and I love birds and your's are simply beautiful. We don't get the opportunity to see the pretty tits, at all! The long tailed one is particularly nice, but the blue is great too. Heck, we like them all.


    What an angelic pose for Matthew. He really is such a beautiful child. (Don't tell him I said that. Boys are funny about being called beautiful sometimes).

    When we went to Devon about 7 years we hired a cottage by a stream and it was my mission to see a kingfisher so I sat by that stream for hours most days and finally I spotted one. I didn't get a photo but just had to see one.

    I also spotted a Dipper which I didn't recognise until I went through my bird book and identified it.

    Last year we went to Harry P Leu Gardens and whilst I was standing quietly in the nature garden I saw 2 - yes 2 hummingbirds - well I cried like a baby as it was so unexpected, it has been my lifes dream to see a hummingbird in natural habitat.

    I didn't have a camera so Jai has promised we can go back this holiday to see if we can spot them again and we'll have video and camera

    Oh Arkvilla, you should see more hummingbirds there! They plant the gardens to attract them.

    There are LOADS of kingfisher in the Fort Myers area. We used to see them there all the time. They are one of our most favorite little birds. (If we are both referring to the same bird... never too sure about names across countries).

    I saw one on my drive over Alligator Alley a couple of weeks ago. I was hoping to see more as we don't get them up here in Central Florida often, but was happy with seeing one.

    Oh, meant to say we saw Cedar Waxwings at Disney a bit ago. Couldn't get a decent shot with the camera phones so went back the next day and they were gone.

    They were feeding on a tree that had dark blue berries. There were still berries left on the tree, but no birds. :(

    Maybe next year...

    Some beautiful bird pictures there Skywatcher. Might I ask what the Arundel WWT is?
