Garden Birds

Santa was very kind and brought me a new lens (40-150mm) for my camera. So I have been trying it out and am very happy.  The garden birds are great subjects – if you can get close enough.

The bird feeder is a great place to get them. We take part in the garden bird survey every year which is hosted by Bird Watch Irelandand record the birds in our garden from December to February. Many counties have similar citizen science surveys (e.g. RSPB in the UK).

Our friendly robin is an even better subject, because we can get really close.
