🎉 Absolutely choughed to spot this pair! 😉 The ‘Crow of Cornwall’ has been associated with the county for centuries and even features on the Cornish coat of arms, alongside a tin miner and fisherman! ⚒🐟 - so it was a great relief when these birds finally returned here in 2001, following an absence since 1947! 😧 . It’s thought their populations dwindled following the 19th century when farmers moved their herds off the cliffs and into fields where they could be managed easier. As a result the grassland cliffs were no longer grazed and grew into a scrub, making it harder for the Choughs to dig for invertebrates in the soil 🐜 . #ukbirds #ukbirdwatching #ukbirdlife #ukwildlife #wildbritain #birderslife #birdersofinstagram #twitchers #kings_birds #bird_brilliance #nature_worldwide_birds #nutsaboutbirds #birdstagram #birdsofbritain #feather_features #avifauna #cornishcoast #cornishwildlife #wildcornwall #southwestcoastpath #ifollowcornwall #kernowfornia #kernow_shots #lovekernow #explorecornwall #ukcoast #wildlifeconservation #conservationphotography #chough #cornishchough

Photo of little grebe on far bank of river. Image no doubt could be sharper, but I loved autumnal colours reflecting on the water in the late afternoon light. #littlegrebe #littlegrebes #grebes #grebesofinstagram #dabchick #dabchicks #birdsofbritain #britishbirds #birdphotography #nature
Taken late autumn afternoon when light fading. Still pleased to capture him feeding tho. #kingfisher #kingfishers #kingfishersofinstagram #birdsofbritain #britishbirds #birdphotography #nature
BLACK CAPPED CHICKADEE: it was a very cold day out when feeding these my chickadees my hands started getting cold so I just put the seeds on my lap and took pictures and filmed them. These little guys seem to love to cache sunflower seeds in human pockets or under there leg which honestly is very interesting and shows they are not scared of humans one bit once they get to know you which takes about 3 months. Does the first picture of the chickadee look a bit angry or is that just me?

I glanced up while walking the dogs this morning to see this little owl peering at me from a hollow in a tree. I managed to grab a quick snap at the limit of my range and took a step in to get a little closer. Its eyes widened and it hopped down into its nest and out of sight. A lovely encounter, if all too brief. . #littleowl #owl #britishbirds #birding #birdphoto #birdsofbritain #rspb_love_nature #mordenpark #wildlife #wildlifephotography #naturephotography #canon #canon7d .
This swan was at my local park. I can't decide whether it's a Whooper or a Bewick's. Anybody know? #swans #britishbirds #britishwildlife #birdsofbritain #britishwaterbirds #onthelake #seeninthepark #waterbirds

While walking along one of the cliff walks in West Bay I spotted this Kestrel hovering quite close. When birds are this close to me, I often decide to just watch and enjoy rather than potentially scare it away with movement when getting my camera ready (which, trust me, has taken a while to accept). But this little one was not fazed by me one bit! I managed to get a few half decent photos of her hovering and then after a while she came down to preen and I spent a good 15 minutes sneaking closer and closer. Eventually I ended up on my stomach on the floor, in true wildlife photographer style. Really, it was just incredibly windy and I couldn’t hold my camera steady so I needed the floor as a support! #kestrel #birdsofprey #huntingbird #britishbirds #birdsofbritain #birdsoftheuk #ukbirds #birdsofinstagram #wildlifeofinstagram #wildlifephotography #wildlifephotographer #westbay #birdwatching #fujifilm #fujifilmxt1 #fujifilmxseries #fujifilm100400mm
A Grey Heron landing in a roost spot. Although most people will see Herons stood on the ground or wading in shallow water looking for food, a Heron will actually roost and nest in trees. Groups of Herons nesting are called Heronries. When nesting some Heronries can reach sizes of 150-200 individuals! 🐥Grey Heron- Ardea cinerea🐥 #wildlife #wildlifephotography #wildbird #animal #greyheron #heron #bird #birdsofbritain #birdsofinstagram #nature
There was loads of Starlings in West Bay when we were there last week and I realised how much we take them for granted. They’re such amazing birds - their plumage and calls are quite incredible. I’m looking forward to seeing the murmurs in the coming months! It was so windy as well so as you can see, they’re all holding on for dear life. #westbay #dorset #birds #starling #birdsofbritain #britishbirds #birdphotography #wildlifephotography #birdsoftheuk #wildlifephotographer #birdwatching #gardenbirds #birdsofinstagram #wildlifeofinstagram #britishwildlife #fujifilm #fujifilmwildlife #fujifilmxt1 #fujifilm100400mm #fujifilmxseries
