You looking at me Baby?

Yesterday I relocated the mixed flock of Fieldfare and Redwings from last week but in better light conditions. While lurking behind a hedge to get shots of the birds on the ground a dog barked in the adjoining farm and put all the birds up. Fortunately some of them landed on the hedge much closer to me and gave me this shot. Shortly afterwards while looking for another viewing point a Bullfinch landed in a tree just in front of me and I managed to get a quick grab shot.









Regards

Re: You looking at me Baby?

Seeing as the last one's a bullfinch, here's a tenuously related 'one that got away' from Sat :-)

Walking out to my bin on Sat, I spotted something sitting on top of it. As I got close enough to it I identified a bullfinch, all fluffed up and not budging
I figured this was too good to last so stopped for a bit (5m away), then slowly walked closer.... to standing right beside the bin, with again no reaction - even when I walked in front of it and stared closely to check if it was even alive!

Dashed back indoors to get the camera, as I figured I'd never get another chance like this, but when I came back out it was up on its' feet, and flew away as I walked over.... leaving just a white reminder of its' passing, so to speak :-(

Hi OwenMc
Been there, done that, got the tee shirt. I've now given up finding/setting up/changeing the lens on, the camera when someone says " look at that lesser spotted xyz " as I usually miss seeing the bird at all. The only solution seems to be to sit, camera at the ready and wait for something to appear.
