I have posted a collection of common birds that are busy feeding or being fed. It was raining when I spotted the green woodpecker with its muddy beak probing the wet ground for ants. The goldfinch family were extracting seeds from the teasels and were much too busy to see me photographing them. All these images were taken while waiting for more rare birds to appear; sometimes waiting patiently can bring unexpected photo opportunities.
