When I go out with binoculars and/or camera, I’m not really looking for farmyard hens or tame geese. However………
………..I was so pleased to find this weekly bird challenge last week that I promised myself that I would post something every week.
No binoculars were needed to spot these birds!
This first picture goes back a few years to a walk in a local park where there is a heronry in the middle of lake. We met this tame goose on the way:
I spotted these hens roaming around the beer garden of our local pub, when we were en route to the canal towpath:
Whilst these egg-layers have all the magnificent scenery of the Lake District to enjoy, they seem more concerned with getting through the gate into the farmyard:
Finally, I can’t resist re-posting this picture of hens pecking on a cottage window on the Holy Island of Lindisfarne to remind their owner to come out with a handful of grain for them:
