  • Blackbirds

    Firstly - a general question. Are you finding that there are very few small birds in the garden this year?

    I have been trying to get some pictures and the number of birds using the feeders is way down on usual. Possibly it's due to the mild winter and an abundance of natural food. Even the bluetits which normally frequent the feeders most of the day are only around in small numbers.

    Anyway, I concentrated on the blackbirds and it's quite difficult to get any feather detail. Here are a couple of attempts.

    Second question: I have done some manipulation on the second picture. I know you shouldn't on wild life work but it is destined for a painting and all's fair in the art world. Does the manipulation show do you think?
