The first shot tonight is a moorhen. Nothing unusual about that (they inhabit the pond year round), but I did like the pose.
Overhead the swallows are beginning to build in number, and have been joined by house martins. No decent photos of the latter, but the swallows are already starting to gather mud for nest building.
There are sparrows...
Even a proud puffed up crow.
A quick garden update... the cubs are still there, as are the three adult foxes. The local cats are shunning the garden at night, though they are active during the day. And watch out for the surprise garden visitor in last night's video.
Plus a fox cub portrait to close tonight.
Camera note: all birds photographed with the Canon 7D and EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L USM IS lens. The fox cub was taken with the EF 24-105 F4L IS USM lens. Video from the Bushnell Trophy Cam HD.
