European Birds

These are my snapshots of European birds. Taken with bridge [not SLR] cameras with zoom [10x to 35x]. They have been cropped and adjusted for levels in Photoshop. They are put on my website for my convenience. There are better places to go for really great pictures [look for them on my Bird page. They have been taken in UK and France.
