#30DaysWild – Day 6 One perch….. how many species?

Today’s #30DaysWild was a challenge to see how many species use just one perch. This perch is right next to my hub feeders, so the birds regularly use it before alighting on the feeders. I set the Bushnell Live View on the perch with the 60cm close-up lens and let it for a day. I set it to a 10 second video and then lifted a screenshot from the video. I find this is the best way to get a good image as you can move through the video, one frame at a time, selecting the best image.

I had rather a lot of clips to wade through once home and it was great to see SO many species visiting regularly. So, what did I capture?
