WILD BIRD WEDNESDAY -Blessingbourne House (Part 9)

These are all the birds I managed to photograph while I walked round the Blessingbourne House Estate. I also hear Chiffchaff, and saw a pair of Bullinch, Greenfinch, Long tailed Tit, Wren, Dunnock, Magpie and Wood Pigeon.

I loved watching the antics of the Swallows. 

This is the video I posted last week of them dansing to music however for those that missed it, here it is again. It always make me smile!



I hope you enjoyed seeing the birds I photographed at Blessingbourne House and that the video gave you a smile!

  15. It amazes me that there are so many different birds hanging in the same place. You must live in a wonderful world wide meeting place for all of the passerines in the world. And I did miss the the video the first time, but loved it this time. Awesome post, Margaret.

    I used Windows Live Movie Maker to do my little Robin ditty ... I would like to know how to do You-Tube as well. Actually anything you could teach me would be greatly appreciated. :)
