Wildlife Wish List :)

Mallards.

Another year and another Wildlife Wish List that I would love to capture on camera. I only started taking my camera out with me on walks a couple of years ago. Since then I have been lucky enough to see all sorts of wildlife……but I’m not always quick enough to get a decent picture. There are certain animals and birds especially, who always manage to evade my unfortunate photographic skills. 🙂

My camera is pretty good , it is only a Panasonic Lumix with a 12x Optical zoom which I have had for nearly four years. Maybe its time for an upgrade. I like the fact that it is a small camera but maybe I should go with something with a better zoom. I’m rubbish with all the technical terms !

Anyway here are a few animals and birds who live locally but who scarper quickly when they see me coming!

Jay, Tawny Owl, Pied Wagtail, curlew, Fox, Roe deer, Hare, Lapwing, Sand Martins, Bullfinch, Goldfinch, Tree Creeper, Great Spotted Woodpecker, Kestrel, Starling, swallow, Jackdaw, Redwing, Badger, Kingfisher, Hedgehog,

I would be happy if I manage to get photo’s of at least three of the species on my list this year. 🙂

So if you see someone hiding in the hedgerows it may just be me ( Nerdy bird) hoping for that shot of an elusive Bullfinch. Lol. ;0)
