The Bird Calendar

1 month 1 day ago #696999 by chipyluna
My Dad is after a bird calendar this year and rather than going out and buying one he has charged me with the task of making one.... He gave me a list of birds..... 

Black Bird                  Got
Robin                         Got
Chaffinch                   Not seen
Song Thrush              Not seen
Green woodpecker    No idea
Magpie      Got
Blue tit                       Got
Sparrow                     Got
Wren                          Got
Goldfinch                   Have attempts
Lark                            No freaking idea where to find this one.

However with some of the birds he has chosen that I have failed to shoot, instead I swapped out for birds that I'm more likely to see in my area, such as a Chiffchaff, Long Tailed Tit, Spotted Fly Catcher and finally a Great Tit, these cheeky chappies have been way to quick for me to capture, until last weekend, where I had one keep coming back again and again so managed to get a few photographs of it.

LARK… not sure if found in the UK.

"Larks are passerine birds of the family Alaudidae. Larks have a cos-
mopolitan distribution with the largest number of species occurring
in Africa. Only a single species, the horned lark, occurs  in North A-
merica, and only Horsfield's bush lark occurs in Australia. Habitats
vary widely, but many species live in dry regions. When the word
"lark" is used without specification, it often refers to the Eurasian sky-
lark (Alauda arvensis)." — Wiki.

Chaffinch (2) and a female seen in central Europe…

Ah well that helps me out no end, means I'm not going to go searching for a bird that is unlikely to show itself, so thank you for that, I think I have spotted a Chaffinch now looking at it, think I may have seen a pair of them feeding from the ground, I guess I'm always looking to the trees for birds, and forget to look at the floor. Superb captures by the way. And you are super lucky to be able to get a shot of a Lark :)
