NOT THERE YET (15/11/10)

We spent the weekend back at Greta Bridge. I’ve come to the conclusion that my long lens is overdue a rebuild. It has been dropped twice so perhaps I shouldn’t be surprised………….I am though………….Price they are they should be blast proof.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Here is the Wren, still way out of focus but better than last weeks effort………….Not there yet by a long chalk. There was also a Goldcrest………..Cause I didn’t……. faster than the Wren is the Goldcrest and smaller.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA  A tree full of Fieldfare. I did manage a slightly closer shot…………….

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA  Even if the quality is no better.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA    Grey Lag Geese, again I doubt the image is good enough for me to be contradicted.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA    The Lapwing were back…..it is a pity I can’t get closer…….not for the birds of course.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA     Two pheasant having a tiff. So fascinated was I that I almost forgot the picture.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA     A fine crop of Shaggy Scale Cap around the base of a White Poplar.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA      Reflections and Black Headed Gulls.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA       A cool start to the day but still well worth being out.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA       And after a couple of hours or so we beat the rain.

Not a very productive weekend but a very enjoyable one.

Have a good week the weather is looking good so am back off to try for some proper shots of the bridge at Stockton.

  3. I am always fascinated by pheasants and this picture interested me greatly as I've never seen too males invading personal spaces before. I like the last one with the shadows and repetition improved funnily enough without the roof I think.

  4. Keith, the pheasant were really going at it, leaping in the air the works. Camera was on burst but I forgot to use it. The birds were good which is more than can be said for the pictures.

    John, I know! Once Ileft the strap hanging from the table and the dog caught it the second big crash was when the tripod blew over. I was hanging my bag from it for stability at the time.

    Jay, both grouse and pheasant put on a good show when annoyed. The old byre is about to get a new roof but it looked good with the early sun catching it. A bit over processed but I still have the RAW file so no worries.

  6. Wind, I love being out at dawn or dusk watching birds. Yours are going to feed and coming back to sleep. I find Ducks go first, then geese then gulls. Always a noisy business.
