Earnest won't like this one John.
I've tried different feeders but don't get these in my garden.

Harry C.You all know my feelings of photo`s of `wildlife`on Photo-a-Day.
I like to watch and listen to birds when outside or looking out of my lounge window.
Last Monday, whilst playing golf, several swallows were flying low around me. It`s marvellous that they don`t collide.


Comment by Al. C. on 27th June 2012 at 09:18
I like this photo John, get them in my garden now and again.


Comment by Ron D on 27th June 2012 at 10:34
Better natural history picks than poetry .for that matter outs better. I also think that this is becoming more of a chat room.
birds of all species applauded .
nice one John.

"errrrr hello" have we gone back to wildlife pictures again? snap out of it and dont make me get my mad up.


Comment by John on 27th June 2012 at 17:11
The beak appears out of focus


Comment by David Barker on 27th June 2012 at 19:36

Dirty Harry,

'Snap' out of it - very good.


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 28th June 2012 at 07:58
There was a photo of a bullfinch on
P-a-D 18th March 2010.
One comment I entirely agree with :-
Comment by Lisa on 21st March 2010 at 11:21
FOR GODS SAKE - ENOUGH WITH THE BIRDS!!! If you want to post pictures of birds join a photography site or a bird watching site, not - and look at the header - Wigan world. I'm not saying they are badly taken, you're obviously a skilled photographer, but what does it show of Wigan to the world? This could've been taken anywhere

WHAT HAVE THEY GOT TO DO WITH WIGAN? HOW IS THIS SHOWCASING WIGANWORLD?

Boring boring boring boring and..... oh! Boring.

Re the comments made by Ron D yesterday regarding Photo-of-The-Day becoming a chat show, I agree
with him entirely.I thought P-H-O-T-D was to discuss photos.The a
re are other ways of chatting









Re Ron-D's comments yesterday regarding P-O-T-D becoming a chat show,I agree with him
entirely!Lets keep to discussing photos.There are other ways of expressing opinions on Wigan World.Lets keep to them.
