    Default Not really been birding today...

    ... but the birds have come to me. An Osprey carrying a large fish over my house actually dripped blood onto the terrace, an adult Black-winged Kite has been eating my rats () and actually posed for a photo (unfortunately right at the edge of my land and about 200 metres away):

    And, I have noticed recently that a very large number of birds have ticks attached, such as this Stonechat (also in my garden):

    Rather odd for this late in the year - is this a further sign of global warming?

    Hi Colin,
    Nice photos. Is it not amazing that some of this creatures are our next door neighbour's and we have to marvel their presence. Good catch for the tit too, I could see with my naked eye.

    Thanks Seedy gambian birder.
