Black Tailed Godwits

Thursday, April 24th, 2008

Plenty of these around at this time of year at RSPB Marshide. The light was a little harsh and I would have liked the sun lower in the sky, however I like the action. btgsqr.jpg

More Robin in flight action

Another in the series of high speed flash images. This background proved to be useless for Coal Tits and Great Tits as the bird colour just blended into the background.

This was taken early one morning whilst waiting for the hares to arrive. It had found some small branches overhanging a drainage ditch which it clasped hold of for support.

Saturday, April 5th, 2008

My favourite bird hunting for its breakfast. Taken early in the morning about an hour after the sun had risen. There were two in the fields, the female getting herself fit and strong for the breeding season ahead.
