Garden photography March: wildlife in the garden

24 Comments

For the month of March Jude has asked us to share garden wildlife photos.  I’m hoping to publish more than one garden wildlife post this month but I thought I would start with a selection of photos of the wildlife in my garden that I have taken over the last few years, some of which you may have seen before, but I thought it might be interesting to see them all in one place.

So, without further ado…

A gallery of birds…

…and some of our other visitors.

Apart from the bees and the badger, all the photos were taken through the window, using a zoom lens.

If you haven’t seen Jude’s blog about all things flowery, planty and garden designy then I urge you to go and have a look at The Earth Laughs in Flowers and enjoy her wonderful photography.

  1. Your birds are beautiful – it’s interesting how they vary from one part of the world to another. And a fox! I would love to see a fox up close and personal!

  2. What a wonderful collection of garden wildlife. Your windows must be extremely clean to get such clear shots through the glass. 🙂

  3. You certainly do get a lot of different birds in your garden, Elaine! Very impressive!
    And that’s a fine fox as well!

  4. Great photos, Elaine. Mr. Fox looks very at home in your garden. 🙂

  5. So much color and life in your garden, just beautiful. Thanks for sharing with us.

  6. You have been busy in the garden, Elaine! The fox looking into the camera is fab! So wary 🙂 And even a badger, too! Cute little robin- musn’t leave him out. And hi Mr. Squirrel! A menagerie 🙂

  7. What can I say? I am stunned by so much wild life in your garden. The fox is amazing! We used to get foxes in the garden in Hampshire, but I only ever found the poo they left behind which wasn’t nice 😦 Used to hear them screaming too (such an eerie noise) and also heard owls. I am envious that you have seen a badger. Alive. Thanks for sharing these Elaine. it has been lovely to see them all.

    • We are really lucky to have so much visiting us. The foxes have actually been quite troublesome over the years, and particularly when we still had our dog. I was always finding fox poo in the garden – even on top of the dog’s favourite toys! Now we have no dog, there is not so much poo, but still as many fox visits. We hear them at night too – and they are VERY loud sometimes. I think there is a den in the garden which runs along the bottom of our garden. It was great to capture the badger. I knew they were around because I have seen the damage they did to our fence – they are very strong.

  8. Oh wow, so many birds!! We only get house sparrows and the occasional blue tit. And I’ve seen a squirrel in the “garden” (which isn’t much of a garden) twice.
    The fox pictures are my favourite. And the bee, of course.

    • Oh, and crows. There are lots of crows outside! They don’t come to the balcony though.

    • Years ago we used to only have the odd starling and blue tit, but gradually more and more have been visiting. I try to put out a range of seeds etc to try and entice different breeds, and it seems to work. We never have sparrows in the back garden – they are only in the front, where I don’t put out food, but they nest in our eaves. We have baby ones already!

  9. I love the robins. They are full of character. The fox reminds me of Brother Fox in Isabel’s garden in “The Sunday Philosophy Club”.
