Meadow Birds

On day 231 of 365 Says Wild I wandered down to the meadow and spent some time watching the birds on the feeders.

To go with my new phone, I recently treated myself to a set of clip on lenses – a set which includes a telephoto lens. There are always so many birds in the hedgerows when I’m out and about, and the phone camera alone simply doesn’t have a good enough zoom for me to catch them. I was determined to try my new mini lens out on the birds in meadow. I managed to get a few moderately decent shots but most were, unfortunately, blurry. The lens set came with a mini tripod which will be very useful for other shots, but wasn’t much use by the feeders as I had nowhere to place it. It’s very tricky to get a clear zoomed shot when shooting hand-held.

There were Blue Tits, Great Tits, Long-tailed Tits, Sparrows, Robins, and Blackbirds all hopping around. I only managed to get usable pictures of the first two.

Have you been watching any of your local wildlife lately? Let me know in the comments below.

  1. I’m sure you will get the hang of it soon. We have a strange dearth of small birds at the moment. Sparrowhawks have been circling for months – maybe they are responsible
