Songbird photography at Old Moor RSPB

Songbird photography

A couple of hours of songbird photography at Old Moor RSPB reserve near Barnsley paid dividends today resulting in more than a handful of good images. The most common bird was bullfinhc and reed bunting along with the usual suspects such as blue tit, great tit, goldfinch, blackbird and chaffinch, but we had a few visits from a male brambling and the one bird I was hoping for – yellowhammer. Yellowhammer is a bird I’ve never really photographed well, so it was nice to get some images in the bag today of both male and female both on perches and on the ground. We used a variety of flowering trees for our props – blackthorn, pussy willow and cherry blossom and of these, I think I liked the willow best. Here are just a few images from today’s songbird phorography session.
