WILDLIFE WEDNESDAY

Another Wednesday in the lockdown hide , ok in reality that’s my back garden. Up early again to try and photograph the early bird , however I’m not the only early riser. My next door neighbour has also set his alarm , not to photograph his garden wildlife however but to demolish his garden patio. I think it goes without saying a sledgehammer on concrete slabs doesn’t lead to a great day photographing wildlife. Loud as the garden renovations over the fence might be , they are no match for my trusty Bose noice cancelling headphones ( over makes are available ) and at least the pigeons and blackbirds haven’t been scared off by the constant noice. One of the pigeons even managed a little meditation, must have been watching the squirrel !
