Bluetit on the peanut feeder on my garden. It's hard to capture good photo on my phone's camera though especially with starlings above squabbling above shaking the feeder stand :) #birder #birding #birdwatching #nature #rspb #cheshirewildlife #winterwatch #phonecam #cameraphone

This is the 1st of my 3 bakes that the lovely Sandra Vick is featuring along side her gorgeous art on her mugs and cups as part of her 12 days of Christmas. This is Day 5 and features a spiced gingerbread fir tree with Scots Pine Chocolate from @charlotteflowerchocolates and edible gold leaf for a bit of luxury! The chocolate orange hot chocolate recipe sounds delicious! #foodblog #foodblogger #foodbloguk #scottishbloggers #edinburghbloggers #edinburgh #scotland #igersscotland #eastlothian #littystestkitchen #littyslarder #repost @sandravickart with @get_repost ・・・ 12 days of Christmas Day 5: chocolate-orange hot chocolate in a barrel mug with a scot’s pine chocolate and edible gold ginger fir tree. Now I do like a chocolate orange so I was interested to try this hot drink. It is yummy! I adjusted the actual recipe and made it with and without alcohol. It’s nice either way. Today’s cake is a Scot’s pine chocolate and edible gold fir tree biscuit from Littys Larder. @littyslarder is run by the lovely Liz, who is fascinated by developing recipes using very natural ingredients. She bakes and cooks using a combination of local, seasonal, fairtrade, organic, homegrown, homemade and foraged ingredients. More details about Litty’s Larder and for the recipe, pop over to visit our website blog. www.sandravick.co.uk #sandravick #littyslarder #gingerbiscuit #scotspine #scotspinechocolate #ediblegold #bonechina #bluetits #hotchocolate #ukgiftideas #shopscotland #instaedinburgh #lovenature #rspb #12daysofchristmas #mug #alittlesliceofsweetness #justsosweetedinburgh

This was taken last winter when there was snow on the ground. Bramblings and goldfinches as part of the huge gang of birds at our feeders. The Bramblings only come in when the weather is really bad whereas we’ve had up to 20 goldfinches in the garden before. #brambling #goldfinch #bird #britishbirds #rspb #sandravick #birdwatcher #scotland #midlothian #instaedinburgh #winter #feedthebirds

Can anyone identify this bird that I saw on one of my feeders at the weekend? The two birds I’m thinking it might be are either a male blackcap or a marsh Tit? But I could be completely wrong. #countryfile #birdsofinstagram #sigmalenses #birds #britishwildlife #britishbirds #birdphotography #bird #rspb #rspblovenature @rspb_love_nature #ukbirds #ukbirdsofinstagram #rspb_love_nature

First time visitor to the garden. A beautiful Dunnock (Prunella modularis)  this is why I enjoy garden birdwatching so much. You just never know what's going to arrive next !! The Dunnock is classified as an accentor, a group of birds in the  Prunellidae  family: there are only two in the whole of Europe, with just one in the UK. They are primarily of Asian origin. The Dunnock is similar in size to the House Sparrow, though it is a sleeker bird with a fine bill. The plumage is rather drab, being a mixture of grey on the head and chest and brown elsewhere. The upperparts and flank are streaked with warm-brown tones. Dunnocks are usually seen foraging on the ground, shuffling about ‘mouse-like’ in search of food, the tail moving nervously. Young birds have olive-brown eyes, these developing a stunning mahogany-red colour when the young birds reach their first Christmas. Did you know : The dunnock does not breed in pairs. They breed in groups. The groups could be 3 males and three females, but two females with two males are usual. Dunnocks have one main partner for life, but they also have many other mates on the side. Females are just as likely to have affairs as males. This little bird has had three names, dunnock, hedge sparrow and hedge accentor. Average lifespan:  2 years. #nature #animalsofinstagram #animal_captures #animals_in_world #splendid_animals #animalscaptures #animal_fanatics #animalelite #animal_sultans #wildlifephotography #birdphotography #wildlifephoto #wildlifelovers #wildlifeplanet #wildlifeonearth #wildlifeaddicts #wildlifeperfection #birdsofinstagram #ukwildlife #gardenbirds #birds #photooftheday #rspb #cannon #snappybeaks  #birds #gardenbirds #animals

For anyone looking for a wildlife friendly reindeer food recipe, I found this one on the @rspca_uk website. There's a reindeer cookie recipe on there too if you think Rudolph and his friends might need that extra burst of energy! 🦌 #rudolph #reindeer #reindeerfood #ecofriendly #kindtowildlife #noglitter #noplastic #rspca #rspb

The Red-Backed Shrike or ‘butcher bird’: this carnivorous little thing impales its insect victims on thorns to eat later, in a sort of bird horror film. Sadly, they are listed as critical status and near extinct in the UK, largely due to habitat loss.

// m u r m a r a t i o n ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you ant to introduce something really special into your day during the winter, if you live near the coast in the UK you might be fortunate enough to witness one of the most captivating displays of nature. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The murmurations of starlings is a dramatic, hypnotic aerial dance. It is quite meditative to sit and observe it. Large flocks gather in the dusky sky and seem to spin, whirling twist, moving in dark waves through the sky.

Jim Rohn said that we are influenced by the five people we spend the most time with, and the starlings base their movements on their 7 closest companions too. Their large numbers protect them from predators and keep them warn when they are huddled to roost. They also have a strong sense of community, with the youngsters learning from those with more experience. 
Whilst the numbers look staggering, starlings are sadly in steep decline. Watching this joyful and uplifting vision may be just the thing to get us more connected to the nature scape around us and more determined to play our part in preserving it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

First attempt to capture starling murmutations. They appeared to be a bit confused this evening. Better luck next time, I guess. #starlingmurmuration #starlings #rspbnewportwetlands #rspb #newportwetlands #birds #birdwatching

On the seventh day of Christmas.... Day 7: Mulled tea in a barrel mug with beetroot and rose marshmallows from @littyslarder This mulled green tea is a lovely fruity and warming drink - could be a good alternative to mulled wine for a non-alcoholic option. It has rose petals as an ingredient which makes it a perfect accompaniment to Litty Larder’s beetroot and rose marshmallow. A lovely melt in the mouth homemade marshmallow - a completely different thing to those white and pink ones cooked over the bonfire or BBQ. #rspb #sandravick #ukgiftideas #shopscotland #tea #cuppa #greentea #mulledtea #fruittea #marshmallow #berries #beetroot #rose #britishbirds #mug #12daysofchristmas

I was recently invited to RSPB Strumpshaw Fen to document the work done by volunteers on the site. They work hard (but have an odd tea break too!)The work they do to manage the habitat helps encourage birds, like the bittern, but also other plants and animals in turn - things which aren't as glamourous, but no less worthy! 😊 Here's a shot from the day which they are using to advertise a residential volunteer vacancy if you're interested! _________ #strumpshawfen #strumpshaw #rspb_love_nature #rspb #norfolk #portrait #nature #volunteer #volunteering #volunteerwork #volunteerspirit #naturegram #portraitphotography #portrait_shots #naturegram #outdoors #conservation #rspbimages #rspbnorfolk #tribenorfolk #eastanglia #eastofengland #volunteers #residentialvolunteer #residential #rspb_loves_nature

Welcome to day 11 of our #25daysofphotographers Advent calendar! Today Stacie Weir, (@stacieanna97) talks about photography! "Photography is a means of freedom to me, my 3rd eye capturing live moments within the natural environment - specifically garden birds - its so intriguing that you never get the same photograph twice always more to explore and lastly the desire to capture a perfect wing spread of a bird in flight." #wildlife #nature #25daysofphotographers #wildlifephotography #december #advent #christmas #outdoors #cold #chill #snow #winter #rspb #photography #adventcalendar #birdsofinstagram
