Was it deliberate do you think? Their legs and claws don't seem designed for ground landings, though not as bad as Swifts. Nice shots, BTW, Paul - you've been really nailing them lately!

"Juiced up' Cape Barren Goose.

With the Saltbush berries being very ripe at the moment our local residents are showing a lot of extra colour at the moment.

Do we have a thread for those that went from a 70d to an 80d?

Thanks Trik, I was told by an RSPB person some years back that birds that spend the majority of their time in trees hop when they are on the ground. ... Yes, your right. the treecreeper appeared very clumsy and out of place.

Goldcrest again, there was 2 of them today in some brambles by our wild pond. One of them stayed higher in the bush but this one was fly catching over a small bit of water and it spent a good 5 mins closer to me than I could focus. Tiny tiny tiny things.

Since you quoted me, I am assuming you are asking me. I have seen comparison discussions about it in a number of threads, but not a dedicated thread.
