Sometimes whilst roaming with my camera very occasionally I get a day when just one species makes my day and makes me so happy to be a birder. Even if the one species insists on leaving foetal matter on my camera bag.....and the day started off so rubbish too.
I set myself on a very overgrown and little used footpath that's pretty good for Tits, Bullfinches and the Chiff-Chaff. This is the footpath
This bird would work it's way up and down the hedge line searching for food and depositing foetal sacks. I just placed my camera bag down, used the vegetation for cover and let the bird go pass a few times. It's a nice little spot especially when the Bullfinch play ball.
So I wanted some uncluttered images. I got some!
An opportunity for flight shots if a: the light was a tiny bit better b: I was quick enough, two frames one after each other the third frame had dangling legs from the top of the frame :-) too quick and busy hunting.
I was enjoying watching the bird as much as photographing it. It seemed to ignore me and other times was feet away even checking my camera bag out which was a few feet away from me, I was wandering up and down the lane trying for other birds it was safe to leave it unattended, right? I mean it's the countryside. Nope. It was using my bag not only as perch to hunt in the long grass and nettles but getting rid of the juvenile birds pooh sacks....I was sure it would wipe off. Couldn't care to be honest, how often will this happen?
