No More Potatos

Over the weekend I went for a stroll in the field behind my house since the farmers have just finished off picking the potatos. We will have 2 years of grass and sheep now.

I got a few shots of the Great Spotted Woodpecker which kept on flying onto the feeders

 and a few shots of the combine harvester which had just started harvesting the corn.

I got some great pictures of sparrows on the garden feeders.

 And a few Rooks making the most off the empty field.

I's great having so much birdlife to enjoy so close to the house, so this will be my Wild Bird Wednesday post.


  1. Great action shot of the Sparrows on the feeders.

    You'll get a few new birds in the field now I should think.

  2. It's nice that you've got such a good variety of wildlife so close to home Findlay...[;o)

  3. Having a great field nearby your home is a wonderful place to see the birds. I love the woodpecker and you got a great shot of the sparrows at the feeder. BTW, to answer your question on my blog the black bird in the water was a Surf Scoter. Great post, hope you have a great day. Happy Birding!

  4. Hi there - great set of shots! We have no woodpeckers in Australia - so keep posting them please!

    Crabs are great to find - look out for my next Monday post for a little bit of a different take on shore crabs!
