Congratulations. According to Wikipedia, as of June 7 this species has been observed 19 times on Iceland, 23 times on the British Isles, 17 times on Ireland. Also seen in Norway and Netherlands however no count given.

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

Given the weather on that side of the pond this is rather appropriate.



A film shot from Cheshire in the '80s. Our weather is more like April than the last week of June.

There are four forms of Yellow-rumped Warbler. The above photo is (or at least was) a male Myrtle Warbler. In the past regarded as a separate species from Audubon's Warbler. Both, along with two other forms are now all classified as Yellow-rumped Warblers.

Is it time for another rant about scientists reclassifying species?

A few garden birds taken this afternoon with the Zuiko 75-300 MKII. All the shots are at 300mm.









Thanks for looking

John

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

They look nice and sharp John

Plenty of light might be the major factor.

Did you by the lens new?

Hi Mark, yes I bought it new from John Lewis this week. It is the MKII version but apart from a lens coating I understand it is optically the same as the original. The shots were indeed with plenty of light and all at 300mm. I had a lot of keepers and quite a few rejects as well but thats nothing new for me and my shakey hands. Even the much improved Olympus IS struggles to correct that.

Regards,
John

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

The top one is a Pied Wagtail and the second is some sort of Pipit - either a Rock or Meadow. I am going for Rock Pipit but hopefully somebody else can identify it positively for you.
