Molly is happy again but hopping along on three legs. I decided that three miles of walk was probably not a good idea. I’ll take the camera to the narrows tomorrow when she will be better with a bit of luck. I found some birds this morning and having tied the dogs up managed to creep quite close. I also slithered through some sheep shit so have a pullover to wash.
Ringed Plover. It’s a beautiful morning but they are the very devil to spot. When they move I can see them but I lose them when they stand still. The big bird is a Herring Gull having a doze in the sunshine.
Pipet…..I’ll guess at Rock Pipet as it was by the sea and on rocks. The nearest meadow is miles away. They do that funny hover about six feet off the ground whilst dangling their legs so they could be Meadow Pipets.
This pair had me baffled, they also had me swearing as every time I went click they dived. Naughty birds. I am going to guess they are Redbreasted merganser. Very posh they are and it’s a pity they didn’t come closer. All images will enlarge with a left click.
I did try using the 2x teleconverter on Little Bertha but I have to focus manually and the focus ring is a bit quick for me. I’ll get used to it and you get what you pay for. I am very pleased with the lens. I can go out for a walk and not think of the effort entailed.
The rest of you just have a great week unless you too have anything to celebrate in which case raise a glass to me.
