Birding therapy

While I was ill last week, Grant took me out several times for a breath of fresh air. Of course, I always had my camera and binos ready!

I'm linking my post today to Wild Bird Wednesday, kindly hosted by Stewart Monckton. 

I hope you're all having a wonderful week.


  1. HI Jo hope you are feeling better now. these are all great photographs. Fortunate you took your camera out with you.

  2. Beautiful birds and great captures for the day, Jo!! Thanks for sharing! Hope your week is going well!

  3. Hope you are feeling better now, it's true fresh air is good for the health !

  4. Glad you are feeling better, Jo.... Those birds are gorgeous. I especially love the colors of that Kingfisher.

    That was nice of Grant to take you out for some 'air' while you were sick.

  5. Hello Jo, I am happy that you were well enough to go out looking for birds. And what a great variety you saw, wonderful sightings and photos. I hope everything is back to normal now and you are completely recovered..Enjoy the rest of your week!

  6. Lovely reflection in the first picture.

  7. Glad you got out of the house. And birding no less. Surprised myself by knowing half of these. Love those Kingfishers.

  8. Great set of birds - we are down at the coast for a few days - lots of wildlife - 'roos, wombats, echidnas and some good birds - but more than that, beautiful weather and relaxed times!

    Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne

  9. Neat photo of the Little Grebe and its reflection. Sorry you didn't feel well but how nice of Grant to take you out for fresh air!

  10. Sorry to hear that you have been ill. Hope you are recovering quickly. Once again the kingfisher is my favourite.

  11. We had a camping holiday over Easter at the Crags near Natures Valley. Our campsite was right next to a pond and I loved sitting there watching the birds come and go. Spotted a giant kingfisher on our first day. Nice sighting.
