Week 1, year 2! Bewicks Swans, a lifer bird for me, hugely in decline now. We get winter migrants every year, but far fewer than previous years. The smallest of the Swan species.

Ok, I've been waiting for the new year to try this. Here's my week 1. I told my daughter to sit still. I didn't even see the guys playing rugby in the background until later.

Tim, for some reason I have a duplicate photo and can't delete on of them. Can you help?
Sorted Jeff. Sorry I missed this earlier! Lovely photo of you with the Bombardier Challenger, it does look like a fantastic plane to fly! I guess at 49,000 feet you are almost in space! :)

Week 52! Made it and didn't miss a week either, so literally one year since I started this give or take a day.

Female Sparrowhawk with a Starling in my garden this week. Truly extraordinary sight to witness and photograph, and despite dreadful light I am really happy with this shot and how it's turned out.
Plenty of shots to come in a post at some point, the hawk stayed for nearly 4 hours, stripping the Starling to a carcass.
Congratulations Kev! And what an awesome shot to finish week 52 on! :)

Week 35. I've clearly failed miserably at the 52 week challenge but then I still have 35 photos that I may not have taken otherwise! :) I shall persevere until I hit 52!

A one-legged great tit in the garden. Well its second leg might have been tucked in, I just couldn't see it! :)

After having done two of these 52-week challenges in a row (2020 and 2021) on another site plus also sharing the ones from 2021 on this site I am taking a break from all time-sensitive photographic commitments now in 2022. I'll still be shooting, of course, and will continue to share this-and-that from time to time.
