What's that bird?

I enjoy nature, when I walk I like to look, listen, smell (if I can get down to it). & shoot it….with a camera. Problem is, I only know a few birds on sight. I will happily post photo’s as & when I capture something, but it will be very doubtful there will be any information other than where/when the picture was taken. Please feel free to educate me by supplying any names etc.

Welcome to ISAB Cliveanne,
I don't get out birdwatching as much as I'd like, so I get my fix in front of my laptop and any unnamed photos are very welcome!

'You are doing brilliantly Cliveanne....Why don't you try a text book

It is so nice seeing all your pics....Great welcome from me too.
Seems like you are enjoying it on 'ISAB as we all do...

Thank you for your welcome folks. I was out walking yesterday morning, a 4mile round trip checking two pedometers against each other (oh, to buy some cheese as well) but that is another story. Walking through the local park, I saw a robin sitting on a fence, he was no further away from me than three feet. I thought that I would dig out the camera-come-phone. He just sat there, with not a care in the world, so having trolled through the 'phone menu to camera, I shot him. I continued on my homeward bound journey, looking forward to seeing the result on my PC screen. What a disappointment on seeing the result. A nice green background of leaf, a good looking iron fence & a blob of brown & rust. Apart from that, a good walk, I discovered that the pedometers did not agree by several thousand steps, but my cheese was delicious.

'You forgot the crackers Gromit!'
A four mile walk eh? You've made me feel very inadequate Cliveanne - that's what I should be doing . . lol.

I have crackers at home thanks I seldom use them. 4 miles is just another day in the office for me. Combined with Tia Chi & swimming, it keeps me out of trouble ;-)

Welcome to ISAB , Cliveanne shame about the robin photo know that camera phones are improving all the time but if anything like mine really not able to get close enough or give enough image quality esp when enlarged to be of use with birds.

The walk sounds invigorating though .. are you close to the Peak District ? a lovely area for a walk.

I am about an hours drive from Ashbourne, gateway to the Peak district. I went last year, parked in Ashbourne at the start of the Tissington Trail & had a 26-8 mile stroll to Hartington & back. :-)

Have visited Matlock , Bakewell and Buxton not too far from Ashbourne lovely area think my days of strolling 26 miles are well behind me now .. esp after too many Bakewell puddings .
