Not Today Mr Jay

I decided before setting off with the Iron Giant this morning, that no matter how much he preened and posed I was going to ignore the Jay and concentrate on getting some shots of the little guys. They may not be as loud and flashy as the Jay but we still have some beautiful small birds in the UK.

These are all quite common and can be seen in most gardens if you pop out a feeder with some seed or nuts. Unless you’ve got a cat, a bouncy dog or a neighbour with a large plastic owl in the garden!!!

      I’ve even started popping down in my lunch hour to break up the day and get a breath of fresh air.
