I headed off to Quarry Walk today, the sky and light for the most part was OK'ish. The Hobbies was busy hawking dragonflies sadly for the most part of the visit on the private section of Grendon Lakes. I was really gutted as at one point during the day as I watched the Hobbies performing their acrobatic displays over one section of the lakes I could see 6 Hobbies, 2 Buzzards, 1 sparrowhawk and a Red Kite. I got great views of what looked like individual Hobbies attempting establishing nesting sites.
I eventually got some good close up flyby's
I'm spending a lot of time removing dust bunnies in post processing, this old 1d mark2 seems to suck dust into it's sensor quicker then a Dyson and it's starting to play havoc with the AF system.
Whilst waiting for the Hobbies to come back over I grabbed a Whitethroat image.
I sadly didn't hear nor see the Cuckoo. That's probably due to no female bird on site. Still at least the Hobbies performed brilliantly if at times distantly.
