Percy entertaining a couple of bystanders!

Hello Hello awesome people of the Hive

This week I got inspired again by the wonderful @nelinoeva and it gave me another reason to test out my still relatively new toy πŸ“Έ.

I am referring to this post Feathered Friends - Show Me A Photo Contest Round 66

Yes, it was time to capture, well capture on screen anyway, some of our feathered friends, and this week the theme is BIRD ON ROCK/STONE!

I knew exactly where I was going to go! Yep my favourite bench in my local park, I was sure that I would see Magpies, Jackdaws, Thrushes, Blackbirds, Starlings and even perhaps a Robin or bluetit!

So I packed up some food for them, grabbed my camera and away I went.

Translation for the nonScots speakers

"The best laid plans of mice and men can still go wrong".


So this blogpost is my entry to #SMaP Show Me A Photo Contest Round 66!


I laid out the food, sat on my bench and we ate our sandwiches, here was our first visitor!

There were actually two Percies and I am sure you could tell by the different rocks!

Meanwhile we did have a couple of onlookers

As hard as I tried to entice this wee one, the blue tit was having none of it, and just watched from a bush over my shoulder!
