Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

There has been a huge arrival of Goldcrests locally over the past couple of days and this morning I found a flock of about twenty of them bathing and drinking at a spring in Sparrows Nest gardens. If you weighed 6.5 grams and had just flown across the North Sea, you would probably welcome a bit of rest and recuperation too. As Britain's smallest and possibly most active bird, trying to photograph them under the sycamores was never going to give great results but I am glad to have some record shots of the experience.

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

Nice shots Ron.

I happened to bump into an acquaintance this morning who said she had seen a "fall" of a large number of Goldcrests at Landguard Point, Felixstowe recently. She said they were so intent on feeding on the ground after their journey that you could walk amongst them and they took no notice. Looks like there must be large numbers all down the coast.

Regards.

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

We have plenty of Robins around at this time of the year. 99% or more are migrants that will stay some time refueling before deciding to the next step across the sea. Most of them will be gone shortly as days are getting shorter and nights colder.

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

Ron I envy you seeing so many Goldcrests and what wonderful behaviour shots, something I would remember for a long time. I see them rarely but am so happy when I do. I just about got focus here, but as always it was dark and tangled and not the background of choice. But for what it is worth.

Tord, lovely Robin shot, you can post them all day for me. I really do not get tired of a bird which sings beautifully, looks so good and lifts your mood. Such a shame they will be moving on.
regards

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

Lovely, detailed Goldcrest shots Peter. They make mine look decidedly rough. It is windy and grey here today and I am debating whether to go out to see if anything else has turned up. It is never as tempting when the sun isn't shining.

Think of all of the times you have gone out on an unpromising day and come back with something wonderful. You know it makes sense....

Both of these taken a couple days ago with the EM5 and adapted Leica 350/4.8. The LTT is a heavy crop.

Having suggested Ron went out I thought i'd better go too. I hope you did better than me Ron. I got cold and windswept!

On the basis that this thread is about birds and not leaves, I have dug into the year 2012 to remember that we will soon be getting all of Tord's birds coming for a holiday.



This was shot against the light with the E3 and my Bigma. So it needed a little help to lift the shadows in lightroom. But I liked the berry and the sunlight.

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

Nice shot of one of the winter favourites Peter. There are some Redwings here already but I haven't seen any yet. I did find a single Fieldfare yesterday in the compound at the bottom of the large wind turbine.

I did go out for an hour today but wish I hadn't bothered. It was bitterly cold and windy and the spray was coming over the sea wall, so I got covered with salt. I didn't see any birds apart from a few gulls and crows and to cap it all I might have been caught by a speed camera van on the way there. What is the date today? Oh yes the 13th.

Ron
