       The boy done good lol      yes, a hobby !    Was so pretty quiet in general around the reserve so didn't take any bird photos except these very distant record shots.       Day 2 starts shortly so fingers crossed I can get record shots of one of the juvie Marsh Harriers;   it has quite dark plumage so easier to spot.

    Sorry to hear it has been quiet, but you were very lucky to see the Hobby.  It is those rusty trousers that give it away.

    Kind regards,

    I didn't know Southern Hawkers hovered. Even so I failed. In my defence it was in a rather gloomy location and I couldn't get the shutter speed high enough.

    It has been very quite over the last two days I have been here at LM, I thinks its because of the heat and the water loss in the pools but you have to do the best you can I have some pictures but getting the time to process them after a long day then getting something to eat and drink like a stiff Whiskey or two makes up for it :) but I am working on them.

    As Jim says, very quiet at LM and this morning the light was almost too bright to focus through the hazy conditions, great pity really as the M.Harriers, although distant, were putting on some good shows. ....    the clarity was hopeless but it gives you an idea of the views we got of the male and female soaring together

    all pics were binned     :(

    How on earth did that bird get up there … especially as it doesn't have any wings
