Redwings

A couple of dozen Redwing were in our churchyard today eating the berries on a holly tree so I took the opportunity to get some images.

I nearly got this one sharp.

Two or three Mistle Thrush were also coming in for the berries.

I said I would have…

…to get out and take some pictures, well I did. The next set of images are from work and Burdon Moor. The wife and I had a walk along Burdon Moor yesterday looking for Shield Bugs and she really did get the “bug”. She spotted quite a few and happily pointed them out so I could get some pictures.

Green Shield Bugs. This was in the morning at work.

The same Shield Bugs in the afternoon.

The same Shield bugs the next day. They were still on the same leaf.
