Lovely, David.
I could see the St Kilda islands quite clearly on some days from where I was staying in North Uist in early May. 44 miles away, I was told!
Which organisation did you take the trip out there with? I doubt I'll ever do it 'cos I'm not a great sailor, but you never know...

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

These were taken late last month at Marquenterre on the Channel coast of France. We visit from time to time and are usually rewarded with leaden skies but this time the sun was out. They are plenty of hides but few are optimised for photography so getting a decent shot is more of a challenge than it should be. Nevertheless it's an interesting place because many of the birds you see are relatively uncommon in the UK.

This avocet was nesting on the near side of an island which is also used by black headed gulls.



After a while she got up and shifted her positon. You can just see the eggs and brood patch.






Further round this grebe obliged.



All are OOC JPG with a little cropping and resizing. EM1/100-400.

We went with Kilda Cruises from Leverburgh Mark. Great set of guys, fast boat (still took nearly three hours to get out and back) but definitely a bit lumpy. Four hours ashore, plenty of time to climb to the highest point of the main island, if the cloud isn't down like it was for us. Highly recommended - there are some very effective anti-seasickness pills available over the counter at any chemist!

Thanks Ron. The diver was photographed literally from the car window. We also saw (but didn't get decent photos of) golden eagles, otters, and a St Kilda wren.

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

I posted this in the Picture Trail thread and it occurred to me that I don't think it's been posted in the communal bird thread.

A summer plumage Red-necked Grebe photographed at Last Mountain Lake, Saskatchewan, Canada. I was sitting in the water at the edge of a channel where a marsh drains into the lake photographing American White Pelicans feeding in the channel when this Grebe appeared to my right. It was a bit of a pain getting shots as the tripod was also in the channel set up in front of me for the Pelicans.



The light wasn't the best because I'd positioned myself for the light on the Pelicans.

WARNING - Nature in the raw





This young hawk has taken out three pigeons in our garden in the last week.
Here he is tonight having his latest meal right outside our back door.

Not pretty I know but its nature at work.
All thats left are feathers.

Well captured Dave. I think I have had one visiting my garden. I have found piles of what look like Blackbird feathers on two occasions recently. I like my Blackbirds, so I have mixed feelings, especially as I haven't even seen the Sparrowhawk.

A female Goldeneye, which is apparently unusual as they normally have blue eyes! (No I really don't know if this is a fact or made up!)

Either way she looks a bit startled!
