A while back I managed to get a photo of a Kingfisher, but it was so far away and with only a 200mm lens, it was basically a blob of colour.
I’ve managed to get a new photo, in the same location as before – still had to crop it down but at least you can make the shape out now!
Great Tit at Blashford Lakes feeding area.
This was taken at Blashford Lakes, run by Hampshire Wildlife Trust. A very photogenic bird, and happy to wander along the edge of the lakes giving plenty of opportunity to capture a shot.
Sometimes I end up with photos that I thought wouldn’t come out. In this case the shutter speed was too slow, so it came out slightly blurred… but I like it, because it’s more dynamic than the photos that I took afterwards where I had increased the shutter speed.
Black headed gulls and ducks battle it out for space
This was wonderful. A young blackbird sat on our fence for a good while, allowing me to take some photos. In fact, I think he was posing a bit.
edit: It turned out to be a blackbird, not a thrush. ID skills need improving.
Not the happiest of birds. I’m not sure it was too keen on having its photo taken.
Ducks are still one of my favourite birds. I think it’s the waddle. I found these at Wisley.
A black headed gull… so called because of it’s… ummh, brown head.
