Since my last post the weather has been appalling. Either very cloudy or strong winds and on some days both. So instead of disturbing my new Barn Owl for unusable images and the fact cycling head on into strong wind is pain in the arse (though pretty cool when it's pushing you) I stayed quite close to home.
First up was a Grey Wagtail on a weir. The weir is conveniently close to the pub, poor light and a couple of pints later these were my best on a day with really dark skies and a wobbly photographer....hic:-)
It was obviously catching food and doing a good job but looking at the next set of images I am not sure how it wasn't pushed off the edge by the strength of the water. I also like when it's stood right on the edge of the weir it's feet effected the water flow falling over the edge....
The last one from the Grey Wagtail marathon shows what it was catching.
AND A COUPLE FROM MY POTTING SHED, this time no falling asleep.
A Blue Tit on a windy day.
And finally a Long Tailed Tit from Eastfield Park....a crap week so FAR but with predicted sun tomorrow hopefully something a bit more exciting.
