Gull Practice

Shooting a few Black-headed Gulls for practice is good especially when there is nothing else about.

A Dark Bird on a Dark Day

Taking photographs of black subjects on a very dull day with no sunlight such as a Blackbird is definitely not recommended as the results are never that good.

Hiding in the Grass

Grey Partridge.
Not a familiar sight anymore in the countryside unfortunately. The Grey are difficult to find due to the considerable decrease in numbers. I was fortunate the other morning to observe 10 in number, although they were not making it easy and continued to hide at the edge of an arable field. Also I could not get any closer due to the terrain. However it was pleasing to find them even if I could not get a clear shot.

An Old Favourite

Winter is coming and our local Nuthatches are keen to get in front of the lens again, especially if there is food on offer.
