A few things!!

As the title suggests I am working on a few things at the moment such as Kestrels and Badgers, and if I am not doing those I am sorting out the Kingfisher hide (still no Kingfishers)! and the reflection pool.

Here are a few photos from my last one or two sessions out with the camera, fingers crossed more to come.

Still not 100% with these but as these are my first Badgers on digital I am hoping to improve.

This pair of Kestrels are back in the old Chapel were I photographed them two years back

I only spent a small amount of time with these chaps but it was worth it.

Sometimes you just get lucky! I would have done if I had got the 500 with me!!!!

Green Woodpecker

Everyone has a 'bogey' bird, animal plant etc. mine was the Green Woodpecker. It was one of those birds that never presented itself in front of the lens, even when I did go for them!

But just as the saying goes "Everything comes to those who wait" well after.... lets just say a few years!! my time had come.... albeit very briefly!!!

I managed to get within shooting range of a pair of birds that were busily feeding on a recently cut grass area and like I said it was very brief as a dog walker soon spooked them.

It is always nice to go out photographing a certain subject but then the added bonus of being able to photograph something else as well especially when it is your 'bogey' bird!!!!
