Thanks.
Very pretty little bird.
It was taken through our front double glazed windows at quite an angle.

He had walked all the way around our house before heading off across the fields.

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

I am glad you have finally worked out how to upload photos David. A great bird in an appropriate setting.

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

The pair of Barn Owls were out hunting again this morning when we went on our early dog walk.

As usually happens, my wife took dog for a run well away from where they normally hunt/perch, saw one catch a vole, land on a post about 20m from her and watched the Owl eating it, whilst I found the wary, camera shy one semi-obscured by oak leaves and couldn't get closer than about 80m before it flew off




Also saw a Grey Heron hunting voles, 2 Kestrels, 1 Buzzard, several Red Kites and a Green Woodpecker, all only 15 mins walk from home.

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

Quick garden grab shot through the kitchen window with my new 75-300mm. There were two pigeons on the bird table until this sparrowhawk had one for lunch. Funny thing is I was just about to take this new lens out for the first time to practice with it. Just goes to show what goes on in your back garden if you're lucky.

Had no time to check settings so shot at fairly high ISO and a stupidly low shutter speed for a 600mm equivalent focal length and self induced coffee shakes So not tack sharp. If only I was outside with better light. Then again the sparrowhawk wouldn't have appeared if I was there. These telephoto lenses don't half take some practice at the long end.

Click for higher res.

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

Very nice opportunistic shot. Image stabilisation is amazing for shaky hands.

We have a couple of sparrow hawks who live fairly close to us. Have to say the pigeon population has dropped dramatically over the summer and autumn and now we don't see the hawks in the garden very often.

Our Sparrowhawk has taken all of the Collared Doves and left the pigeons. So I have some available if yours wants to travel :-)

On three occasions I have been able to shoot the kill and pluck from outside. It is very frustrating to be behind glass, but you have done well here.

Thanks. They're impressive little birds of prey. I was sipping a coffee, looking out of the window at the birds on the feeder and the pigeons on the bird table, when suddenly all hell let loose!

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

I posted this shot of a Little Egret over Titchwell in this thread a couple of weeks ago but then I decided that I didn't like it so I removed the post. I am still not sure if I like it but it has gathered quite a views in my gallery so I thought I would post it again. I can't decide if it works or not.

To be honest: the background is OK but the subject looks out of focus to me and is flying away.
