March is the month when Long tailed Tits start to build their nests. Last week I filmed a pair collecting lichens and then bringing feathers to line their nest with. Incredilbly it is the fiftieth consecutive March that I have done this but the first time that the nest was in a Blackthorn thicket. It is the eighth Long Tailed Tit nest that I have found this month but it is a long way short of the 26 that I found in March 1978. The bonus whilst I was waiting was a Goldcrest that was feeding amongst the Blackthorn blossom.           gallery photos see http://www.facebook.com/gordonyateswildlife

超过五十年,我遇到了许多野生动物摄影师,但尚未遇到一个在隐藏拍摄猫头鹰(Tawny,Little,Barn或Long Eared)中度过一个完整的夜晚的最终挑战的人。晚上晚上9点进入隐藏,直到下午5点在第二天早上凌晨5点不被拍摄。它不需要睡眠,8个小时的总集中才能只需要几张照片。从上面的所有四个猫头鹰种类上,我花了夜晚,这周是凌晨2点拍摄的博客照片,因为男性长的耳朵到达巢穴与他的捕获,只发现女性仍然在他以前的赛中喂养了年轻人!这夜晚是野生动物摄影中最令人兴奋的是,遗憾的是,我所有的照片都在彩色否定,如本周’巢的博客照片。其他人不适合用于图库照片。所以这个星期的画廊是我最喜欢的数字飞行照片在过去几年中拍摄的男性长耳猫头鹰。

现在我们在当地乡村找到了令人惊讶的是,我们现在仍然面临旅行限制。
沿着我当地的运河,在加拿大鹅群中,我遇到了一只粉红色的鹅鹅,幸福地喂养了他们......它来自冰岛吗?我们永远不会知道。灰色的令人痛在运河上常见,甚至停止繁殖去年。我们当地的林地拥有良好的狍人口,如果你早起,那么可以很容易地拍摄!!
上个月我们所谓的“Snow Moon”我拍摄了哪个,因为它在Tandle Hill Country Park的松树背后上升了。画廊照片

繁殖季节开始

Herons are usually the first local birds to start nest-building and this year was no different.In glorious sunshine early this week I paid a quick visit to Queens Park in Heywood and had a lot of action from a pair that had only just started to build their nest. The male was breaking branches off nearby trees and passing them to the female who placed them into the base of the nest. Conditions were perfect and I was able to obtain some good images in the short time that I was there.gallery photos see link below http://www.facebook.com/gordonyateswildlife
