Just a House Sparrow:
...but a very nice capture of one
+1, but, he's in a tree, hehehehe.
Yes, nice capture May be "just" a sparrow to some, but in our garden they're extremely rare so seeing one is almost something to get excited about for me! (Note to self: must get out more.. )
Nothing wrong with Sparrows, good shot
I must apologise to the humble house arrow, I didn't intend to do it any injustice!
I'll echo what I said on the TP forum: very impressive to get a sand martin in flight, they're so quick. Very good stonechat shot too
Very nice shots - the first one looks like it should be inverted
Nice shots, the Sand Martin is excellent.
Here you go Jim.
Cheers - smashing shot - just checked the EXIF - Fekkin Ell - 1/2500th - fast little bleeders indeed - what lens were you shooting with ?
Thanks Jim, yes they are very fast erratic fliers, I used a Canon ef-s 55-250mm om my Canon 60D.
Thanks - obviously works well for you
Was considering this as my comp entry, but changed my mind
Nice, but where did that pipe come from, that wasn't there in the last pic, was it ?
Nice one Bodo - not quite as colourful (in both senses ) as your entry but I think I prefer the "off the wall" interpretation of the theme better in this one
Yeah - looks like the building is "infested" he's got them nesting in every airbrick - lucky guy
Thanks Mark, the pipe is in the air brick on my flat and the one without the pipe that the nest is built in is next door (seen in the out of focus part of the photograph)
The bird always lands on the pipe first, has a look round to see if it is safe to enter the one with the nest.
The nest must be complete as i have not seen them go in for a few days, i have a listen each day to see if there are any chicks ai there, but no joy yest
Thanks for that, had me wondering if i was seeing things or not, its great having birds nesting in your garden, i have for the first time in three years of trying a pair of Blue tits too in a wooden nesting box, they finished making the nest last week and now the male is going back and forth feeding the female, exciting times
A few from this morning

Great set - 2,8 and 9 for me
Looks like you had a very productive morning, great set
Thanks, they were taken at Attenborough in Nottingham - lots of good stuff to see at this time of year.
Nice, great variety you got there
Excellent photos there. Where were you this morning then?
Attenborough, I'll be there again in the morning before it gets too busy
Can you get in there before 9am?
Sorry for the late reply, I've just got back. It opens at 7, I've had a great morning - will put some photos up when I've had the chance to go through them.
Look forward to seeing them Me and my mate went to Potteric Carr again yesterday but there wasn't a great deal about apart from at the feeding station. Like a fool I realised a bit late in the day that I was shooting at ISO 800 for a lot of the afternoon I wondered why my shutter speeds were so high!!
