28-7-13, Photos.

Sorry to bore you but these are some photos over the last few months.  I'm never going to win any prizes for my photography but it reminds me of some very special days out watching lots of special birds.

Caspian Tern, Rudyard.  What a beast of a bird, a lifer was brilliant but in Staffs as well, can't beat it.
Caspian Tern, Rudyard Lake.  And another of the tern but this time in flight.

Barnacle Geese, Whitemoor Haye.  Four plastic jobbies turned up and stayed for about a month although were soon reduced to three. 

Guillemots, South Stack RSPB.  Can't beat a day out in North Wales, and a visit to Anglesey is a must.

Little Egret, Conwy RSPB.  A very different site since the last time I visited Conwy but enjoyable non the less.

Sandwich Tern, Cemlyn Bay.  Back on Anglesey and another destination not too be missed.  I can photo Sandwich Terns all day, love em. 

Willow Warbler, National Arboretum.  This fellow was very vocal and couldn't resist a digi-photo effort.

Stone Curlew, Weeting Heath.  Another digi-photo effort of a cracking species on a day when they showed brilliantly.

Stone Curlew, Weeting Heath.  Just to show how well they showed, this was taken with my Sony A65 with a 500mm lens.

Red-footed Falcon, Lakenheath RSPB.  Probably one of my favourite birds I have had the pleasure to watch.  This adult male was an absolute stunner and my photographs can never do it justice especially with some rubbish settings.

Hobby, Lakenheath RSPB.  Also showing incredibly well were several Hobbies and this was just one  of them I managed to capture on film. 
Red-backed Shrike, Cley NNR.  I've chased several of these to get them on my British list without success but at last I managed it.

Wood Sandpiper, Cley NNR.  This cracking bird was showing very well just off the East bank.  Stunner.

 Avocet, Cley NNR.  The Avocet is a very photographic bird indeed.

Avocet, Cley NNR.  Another Avocet but this time digi-scoped.
 Marsh Harrier, Cley NNR.  I have seen many of these but this day 4 or 5 birds were showing brilliantly.

Common Sandpiper, Cley NNR.  This little fellow was happily feeding right outside the hide a few times.  Lush.
