It's that time of year again, a chance to look back at 2015 and pick a few favourite images. My garden provides many opportunities for watching and photographing birds. I have to be careful I don't spend all day staring out of the window. First, three images of birds and their young.
Then some birds in hand. Most had strayed into the house but the poor woodpecker was stunned on the kitchen window.
Bullfinches are daily visitors with up to four males and two females recently.
The woodpecker and treecreeper photos were taken through an open window but the sparrowhawk through the glass. Memo to self - keep the windows clean.
