Always Birding

Any time spent outside is an opportunity to see some great birds. Dog walks included! Today I got out with my dog in the nearby fields for an hour, and I had a fantastic time birding! Now that my bond with him is strong enough to the point where I do not have to look at him every single second, I bring my binoculars and camera with me hoping to have nice encounters. And today did not fail. It was amazing! The greatest sightings were a male Common Kingfisher (Alcedo atthis), a juvenile Northern Goshawk (Accipiter gentilis) and 2 Common Snipes (Gallinago gallinago). When I walk my dog I know that I am not going to make my best images, but it is not always the point. Learning is the point. So I am always birding.

Here is the list of the bird species I have seen by alphabetical order :

Black-headed Gull (Larus ridibundus)
Carrion Crow (Corvus corone)
Common Kingfisher (Alcedo atthis)


Common Moorhen (Gallinula chloropus)
Common Snipe (Gallinago gallinago)

I hope you too spent time outside today.

Love Nature.
