    Here is an assortment of some of the photographs I have taken over the years. My collection grows and grows each year. Some have won competitions locally and in my county of Cheshire, England. I am awaiting what surprises I will photograph this year.

    Lovely shot of the Great Spotted Woodpecker David. We get them here too and they are really handsome birds. We have numerous blackbirds, robins and jackdaws too along with many other species. Thanks for sharing your photographs with us.

    Marvelous photos! You certainly have a good variety of birds. My husband is the photographer so I will show him your post, which he will enjoy.

    Isn't it great to be able to see birds from different parts of the world? Thanks for your contribution Kildale - a really good selection for us to view.

    Hello Everyone,
    Glad you liked my photographs and nice to read there are more photographers of wildlife on the website. Kildale, what wonderful photographs you have taken. nitram, look forward to your photographs for this year. Marlingardener, Why doesn't your husband post some photographs of wildlife if he takes any. Mart, Yes we have Mallards here in the UK and all over Europe too. Sorry to take away your American ownership of them !!.
    Thanks all.

    Beautifull shots @Kildale. Such pretty little chunky birds! But so self respecting!

    @David great shots, I particularly liked the ones of wet birds in your bird bath!

    Hi Cayuga Morning. It is a full time job to keep filling up the bird baths. No dirty birds here !!.

    A gorgeous photograph of your urban fox nitram. It looks as though he's actually posing for the camera.

    :fingerscrossed: You'll be able to get a photograph of all three together in the near future. We have foxes around here but they are pretty elusive. We can hear them calling but normally only get a quick glimpse of them before they vanish.
