Two in the bush................................................................ and one on the path

I'm still sharing the birds in my garden... plus a visitor who hopped in this morning.
I have probably overdone birds in the hole in my fence so for a change here's a couple taking cover in the bushes before visiting the feeders.

Blue Tit

Robin

Common Frog

We saw the frog on the path this morning while we were having breakfast... he has been taking shelter near the birdbath for the past week or so.
Mandy grabbed her camera and took a few shots before he jumped back into the undergrowth.

We have a pond if the frog wants a swim. It's impossible to get bored watching the garden birds. From Findlay

The Frog is my favourite, it is brilliant.

A blue tit is always a favourite of mine. Each year they return to the nest box in the garden and produce at least 4 young.

neat shots each one (love your blog header, I'm sure I remember this photo from some time back - it makes me smile). I love the birds .. the frog makes me think of a time when I had four or five in a habitat indoors - Centralian Tree Frogs. Very interesting to observe up close. Had a 'moon-light' in there too. I'll never tire of the birds from a U.K. back garden.

These photos of late have such clarity. Have you got a new camera or something?

Andrew, great images of your garden visitors, from both you and Mandy.
I hope you're continuing to make a good recovery?...[;o)

Well done with the frog Andrew. I had the tiniest frog a few years ago and not had since. I guess this tiny one did well to survive the Blackbirds..... yours is a little larger

I missed the hole in the fence, but was happy to see my little robin again. That blue on the Blue Tit is beautiful, and our frog is a cutie pie, too. genie

Your birds, their colours are just so attractive and the Toad is quite the smart looking chap too ;)

Wally Jones said...

I agree with Findlay, could never be bored watching birds in the garden!

Superb images, Andrew!

Love your robin (envious as I'm sure I've told you before) and the adorable blue tit. And the cute frog is an unexpected and fun addition!


(By the way, I could never get tired of your hole-in-the-fence photos.)

Lovely visitors. Even the frog is cute.
