SINGING OUT FOR THE 100th






It's been a long time coming but finally it's time to celebrate......this is  my 100th post!

I would just like to say big thank you to all of you followers and readers that have taken the time not only to view this blog but to also leave  so many kind comments. Thank You.

As I've said it's taken a long time to get to the 100th post, the first was on the 4th November 2010, this is mainly because, first and foremost, my main interest is in taking wildlife and nature photographs, and I find writing an 'interesting' blog a very  drawn out and time consuming task, whatever I write always seems so uninteresting when I read it back!  I don't know how you folks manage to  make your posts so interesting and readable, and some of you do it every day!!... my hat goes off to you all. 

Just for the record I 'check out' all of your posts daily and enjoy reading all the new updates. please keep them coming.

Anyway that's enough  about my authoring skills, it's time to celebrate the '100th' and I could think of no better way than to have a little singsong!

I hope you find the following photos and video....er...interesting? 


Song Thrush

Sedge Warbler

Reed Warbler

Reed Bunting

Chiffchaff

Robin

Magpie




I don't know how or why but somewhere between putting this video together and uploading it to YouTube the captions have somehow floated around to a different position in the frame.
I hope it doesn't spoil it to much!

Congratulations on your century Trevor! :-) you've beaten me and I've been blogging longer!! And what could be nicer than a good old singsong to celebrate and to brighten a miserable June day. All the photos are lovely and how I most like to see birds. The video is a joy, so glad my favourite songster the aptly named Song Thrush was included. Well done Trevor!
