It is good to see some British garden birds!

Thanks @@TonyQ it'd be much easier if the sun came out and they didn't fly away at first sight of my camera :(

Blue tit - terrible shot, but given there are only 3 days left of 2014, I thought I'd better post it, in case I didn't get a better one. Through my dining room window, with high ISO and motion blur :(

The big year is coming to a close. Are you frantically birding these last days?

And I think that is about it. Several more from the garden which I haven't managed to catch. Lots in Kruger that I didn't bother to catch as I was not aware of the Big Year until we got back and a few that got away during our recent trip. But lots of variety anyway.

 

Happy New Year

What a brilliant effort @@Tdgraves.

You and @@Peter Connan have almost kept this thread going between you.

 

Thank you both for making the effort. I enjoyed your sightings very much.
