      We are lucky in having good numbers of this bird too, in fact I am having regular visits to my garden at the moment.

    On top of these is certainly a good place to spot birds from now onwards.

    1. Hi Springman,
      I have to admit to looking up `bokeh` to see what it meant, but I thank you for your very gracious comment.

  17. I love these photos. Do they use that material for nesting? BTW over here we're trying to contain our excitement, but we think (hope) a bluebird may be nesting in one of our new boxes. I haven't even tried to get close enough to photograph so as not to disturb her. Had I digiscoping equipment, however . . . one day, one day. But for now, I'm content to see her (and the Mr. Bluebird) through my binoculars!

    1. Thanks Dominic,
      It just shows how many birds are taken for granted a bit in someones` country, not realising that they are not present elsewhere.
