Easter activity

Sunday, March 23rd, 2008

Like so many at this time of year, I have spent lots of time waiting for some Mad March Hare activity. I have located pockets of hares but trying to get the combination of hares, low angle, boxing activity and low light is not proving to easy, as you might imagine.

Here is a standard hare that bolted as soon as it realised a human was around.

Whilst waiting for the hares a Wheatear dropped in. Quite a heavy crop but the first sighting of one for me in 2008.

I have been trying to capture small birds in flight recently. Here is the latest attempt of a Robin that is so friendly he follows me around the garden most mornings.
