It has been a while since a chicken featured and so here’s one from this morning…
Gear down, flaps down, final approach!
Full throttle, flaps and undercarriage up. Seatbacks and tray tables in their upright position! V1 – V2 ROTATE!
Hands up all those who like Richard’s images!!!
Never a good idea to shoot with a fast shutter speed and high ISO setting on a dull day. Too much noise! De-noise tends to blur the image. Better to wait for the sun to shine!
Fasten your seatbelts and tray in the upright position.
Chickens just love suet. Somehow they swallow these pellets in one go.
Little chicken, big beak!
These chaps have to get in there quickly before the crows come along…

The Big Chicken is back!!!
This is Mrs Black Chicken. She sits and waits for us when we take the dog for a walk in the morning. Many of the good people of Banff and Macduff feed the birds which probably explains why Mrs Black Chicken is a bit on the portly size…

The early bird catches the worm!
At last! I got images of the really BIG chicken!!!
These chickens puff themselves up when it gets a bit nippy…
Migratory birds leaving the UK. Can you blame them? The UK Conservative Party has turned the UK into a failed state. Our services (NHS, transport, energy, schools etc. etc.) have been wrecked by the Conservative Party’s failed agenda. The UK Conservative Party has lost control of the economy. Brexit has been a disaster and desperately helpless immigrants are drowning in the English Channel. I predict a riot!
This unruly little chicken just won’t stay put!

Let’s see if John – https://lvphotoblog.com/blog/ – can identify this chicken (below)?
John is an expert ‘avianonics’ man from Las Vegas. John recently identified this chicken on a different post as a Mandarin Chicken.
Join me as I walk around the wood close to Duff House, Banff, Aberdeenshire, UK.

These long nose chickens spotted near to Banff, Aberdeenshire this afternoon.
Are you looking at me?
I can’t help thinking that this chicken was issued with the wrong feet…
Join me as I try to imagine the sound swooping swallows would make as they fly around the sky over our heads. I always think that swallows are avian jet fighters and yet so graceful. I could watch them for hours…
All sounds created on my Machine Mikro (what a clever little box it is!)
Join me at a bird colony on a rock which sticks out of the sea just West of Portsoy, Aberdeenshire, Scotland. If you listen, you will hear the sea washing around the column of rock and the birds, who cling to and nest of the sheer rock face (see image) and make an almighty noise. You can hear the natural echo as the bird sounds bounce off the cliff faces which surround the rock column. You will hear seagulls, gannets, razorbills, cormorants and many other birds – all squawking away. You’ll hear ‘peak squawking’ at about 2 minutes.
There is always someone who wants a free ride!
Join me and enjoy the sounds from our dog walk in the woods near to Duff House in Banff, Aberdeenshire, this morning. You’ll hear the sounds of woodland birds, including a fine woodpecker, streams and all the other sounds (including, if you listen very carefully, golf ball hits from the nearby Dufff House Royal Golf Club.)
All sounds recorded on my parabolic (directional) microphone using a ZoomH6 recorder (My Zoom F6 still hasn’t arrived!). The sound was mixed (using adaptive noise reduction) using Adobe Audition.
The Walk in the Woods…
Join us as we listen to a group of crows squabbling over something…
