I have been regularly putting food out for the Foxes in the garden for several weeks. They will be busy feeding their cubs now and are obviously very hungry as they are coming to feed throughout the day. I am just starting to get the first decent photographs of them as they are becoming more relaxed with my presence, they even lie down and sunbathe now after eating. Hopefully the cubs might soon put in an appearance if I am lucky.

Every spring we get a number of migrating Ring Ouzels turning up here on the Wirral. They are usually seen briefly and are not a very easy subject to photograph, certainly not as tame as it's cousin, the Blackbird. My previous attempts have only really produced record shots, so I was very pleased to have finally been able to spend some time with an obliging male. A few birdwatchers had come to view the bird and when they left I settled down and patiently waited. I was rewarded with some frame filling shots as it busily fed on worms. A great result.
