We are on our annual trip to the UK and after a couple of days in London we moved on to our first stay on a farm in Buckinghamshire. It’s a couple of miles out of town to provide some peace and tranquility but still close enough for shopping or dining out when needed.
The birds were a bit skittish so I often had to shoot through the cottage windows. Just walking across the window or opening them was enough to frighten them away. These were shot with a Nikon 1 V2 and the 70-300mm CX lens.
This is an English Robin. It’s a lot smaller than the American Robin and a completely different species. Our robin was named after it because of the red breast but the American robin is a thrush like bird and this is more of a flycatcher.
This is a Little Owl. That’s the actual name. After capturing the shot I posted it for ID on a British site as a little owl and discovered that all I had to do was capitalize it.
