Fences are for Birds.

It has been a while since I participated in Good Fences hosted by Theresa so here are a few different fences that I have strolled past recently and being used as perching places by a number of our resident breeding birds.

Scanning the fence boundaries of the horse paddocks in Horton Country Park I noticed that one post was taller than all the others and on closer inspection it was being used by one of the resident Little Owls enjoying a brief spell of winter sunshine. The image quality is not brilliant as I had to heavily crop the original as this small Owl was a long way away and very well camouflaged against the the hedgerow!

The next species, a Kestrel at Tices Meadows was far more obvious as it used a tall post to survey its surroundings before flying off to hunt for a meal.

During a visit to Warnham L.N.R. this week a male Bullfinch perched very briefly on a woven hazel fence.

And finally a Robin using a woven willow fence panel as a perch.  FAB.

  10. Great way to combine birds and fences. Enjoyed them all. The owl was adorable.
    Loved the Kestrel and the way the wire was entwined on the fence. Cute Robin and Bullfinch and I love the woven fencing, so unique.
