On Saturday I took the 40D out for it's fairwell trip before the arrival of the very exciting 7D!!!
Started at Salthouse and after driving through sleet and snow on the way I wasn't too confident about the weather! Still it was OK giving a a few patches of lovely sunshine and the rain showers intervals happened to be when I was in my car stocking up on food!...
Snow Buntings:A little attempt at wide angle and I managed to scare away possibly the most confiding birds in Norfolk:Finally managed some teal shots I'm hapy with too (during one of the sunny spells):and a pied wag came for a pose:A ringedd plover was also there but I only managed this record:Common Gull having a bath:With nasty looking clouds rolling in I decieded to go to Tichwel but on the way it became very sunny again, staying that way for a little while when I was there:
Sanderling:out of focus Bar-tailed godwit:Knot:better records of the mealy redpoll:As I was leaving the sun came out again as I was watching a barn owl hunting - lovely stuff.
It was still a fair bit out of my lense's range so I have attempted something with more space in it:I quite like this one, it's just a shame about the branch in the forground:Had a quick stop at chosely drying barns and saw corn buntings and yellow hammmer on the way home:
