I was up with the Lark this morning. Could well have seen one for all I know. It’s been a very busy four hours birding and other things that took my fancy along the way. I went back to the Gannetry. I really do need to join a birders club………I met three today, they weren’t much help. One was trying to convince me a Rock Dove was a Kittiwake………..I knew it was a pigeon. I think they were winding me up or maybe they were just dumb birders. They had all the gear………cammo jackets, and they were just for their lenses……..Like howitzers the lenses were. One even had a tripod head bigger than my camera and lens. It’s a floating, hydraulic, diesel electric, gimbal head………………..apparently!
I saw one of the flocks from yesterday…………..Goldfinches. This shot and half a dozen similar passed a good half hour on. I could have done with a beater to circle round and drive them towards me. Still most of my bird images are rear views………….I’m thinking of specialising in them. The rest of you can do the front views.
We eventually arrived at the Gannets.
Here are two airborne. I don’t know if this is the best I got. I do know I’ve got a lot. There is still the odd Razorbill around………….I never saw one but the ornicopters at the platform assured me they had seen some.
It’s been another great morning and I’ll now sort out some other birds what I’ve snapped. We are suffering a plague of Craneflies. The birds are having a real feast. I’m just breathing through my nose. They taste of nothing.
Have fun I’ll be back. All Images should enlarge……..non are cropped.
