Urban Jungle #1
I’ve taken quite a few pics over time of the local flora and fauna (with the occasional not-so-local shot too), in large part thanks to the fact that the wildlife-friendly garden I’ve created either features or attracts ’em in. I like looking at other people’s pics of such things, so I thought why not share the ones of my own that I like? No reason whatsoever, so here’s the first.
This is a common whitethroat (Sylvia communis), who spent a fruitful half-hour this morning flitting around the slightly dishevelled post-winter garden (good bug-hunting territory). It’s a new birdy in the garden too, so another one to add to the tick list (of course I have a tick list, I’m a bloke).
The pic isn’t brilliant but, given that I had to take it through the kitchen window at maximum optical zoom, it’s not too shabby either.
