Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

It looks as if autumn migration has now started. There have been reports of Whinchats locally and on Sunday we found six Wheatears on Lowestoft North Denes, including this one which was feeding on the cricket pitch and dug up an impressive looking grub (leather jacket?)

E-M1, 50-200 SWD and EC-14.

I had two Monarch butterflies heading south to Mexico today so they're on autumn migration.

The text says something like "Area holding ancient monuments. Cultural department of Skåne". In this case neolithic settlements. The symbol is a reminder to handle with respect. On a side note the site is within an area utilized by the military for training purpose. Close to the same spot:


"Recently planted (forested). Walking troop only". (Yes the trucks, halftracks and armored vehicles cause serious damage to the vegetation).

If it's full frame I'd be tempted to crop a bit of the blank sky and a bit behind the bird so it's flying and looking into the frame.

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

a few birds from our local salt marsh today

A juvenile Dartford Warbler (I'm told we now have a breeding colony on the marsh )

Swallow feeding over the salt-water lagoon (something I've been hoping to see for years - they dashed in, stayed about 30secs and dashed off somewhere else, possibly on their migration as this is a way station for a lot of birds, had Osprey here a few days back, on their way to Africa)

and a really happy little Sedge Warbler that entertained us for a good half-hour

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

Really enjoyed getting to grips with the 300mm/1.4TC combination for birding this summer. Most of these were shot either handheld or with a monopod.
(although the more eagle-eyed amongst may have noticed that strictly speaking, the last two aren't birds...)


Spotted flycatcher


Juvenile stonechat


Linnet


Whitethroat


Stonechat


Female reed bunting


Grey wagtail


Grey wagtail


Common seal


Hare

A very nice set of birds. And some less regularly seen ones for me. So nice to see them. The hare is lovely too.

Marvellous natural-looking shots David, especially the Spotted Flycatcher and Whitethroat. That lens certainly seems to deliver – in the right hands. I am very impressed.
