Could not resist going to Fishburn today for the Pallas’s Warbler. It showed well but it was very flighty. Managed to see the Firecrest but alas no pictures (even more flighty). Goldcrest, Long-tailed Tits and a couple of Chiffchaff also showed well.

The last few weeks

A friend of mine asked why I hadn’t posted any pictures on my Blog for a while. The simple answer was I could not be bothered to sit at the computer and go through all the pictures I had taken (I hadn‘t even uploaded some of them to the computer which is not like me at all). I have just gone through them all and here is part one in the order they were taken.

A canny day out yesterday

I seem to have lost interest in taking pictures of late having been out only twice in the last month or so. Yesterday I thought I would make the effort and I am pleased I did. A Roe Buck was first and then a cracking Fox showed well. Red Kites were next and then, for me, the stars of the show a couple of Short eared Owl which I found myself, get in, (not Cleveland or South Shields or even the Moors) late in the afternoon. The light was fading so I had to use high ISO so they are not as sharp as I would have liked but hey-ho.
