Pond cleaner.

Clearing the pond of leaves and excess oxygenator caught Robins attention .

Mm wonder if he ll leave out some of those tasty water snails ?

Thats it put it in a nice pile so that they can crawl back in the water ..

.. and I can pick my way through it .Thanks.

Aye Gill many birds seem to love those small black snails fortunately pond seems to produce them by the bucket full .

Hi Stickitoffee its only a compact camera so still need to get fairly close even though it has a 10x zoom.
Seems Ok for garden birds but longer distance shots require some serious kit.Gill has taken some lovely shots and think her camera was surprisingly reasonable on price ..

for sure, im having to be a bit more carefull when putting food out since getting my new cat ray, not like angelina who just like to watch,, he`s a hunter, so never let him out before feeding times, once the birds have been he can go out, poor puss lol, but the birds are pretty wise to him now ;o))

Thank you Deida and Clarice , FP and Janette..yes managed to get some before the blackbirds spotted what he was up to .. they are so crafty with that alarm call they make , sure sometimes they do it just to clear others and leave them to it.
