    Lovely, Bob...Mrs PB will love the highland cattle...one of her favourite animals
  • In reply to Bob S:

    Lovely shots, both the landscapes and the animals. I'm not sure if that's smoke behind the deer but a very atmospheric image, anyway.

  • Nice captures Nige,   good to see the Heron not going short of fish although he'll need a few more to fill him up !

    All I could muster up is a very small patch of blue sky for five mins during the afternoon with a young Swallow getting all excited about its first impending trip to Africa shortly  -

    Hopefully next year it will return with fully grown streamers   lol 

    and same afternoon today but different sky   !!!     and not much of a chance of catching those HM's in speedy flight    

    blurrrr      ! 

    and courtyard robin wondering when it was going to stop raining    lol

  • Thanks, Bob S, Nigel, and Hazel for the latest lovely photos. I can't choose a favourite between the Highland Cattle, Deer , Bunny, Heron, Swallow, House Martins or Robin--all gorgeous.

    Kind regards, 


  • The Highland cattle always do it for me,also known as genuine wild Haggis in our family.


    Birding is for everyone no matter how good or bad we are at it,enjoy it while you can

    Good stuff Hazel.... still never seen a swallow
  • Quick trip to the river today, on the hunt for a perching Kingfisher, as I haven't seen one in months, and also to experiment a little with exposure compensation, as my sister said it would help with my Little Egret shots...

    Exposure 0.0

    Exposure -0.3

    Exposure -1.3

    Exposure -2.0

    Well, what do you know....she know's what she's talking about 

    And the KF I hear you ask.....

    Well they do still perch in Dorset, but hidden in tree's, not out in the open like certain other photographers manage to see...mentioning no name BOB!!! 

    EDIT … I forgot the kestrel!!

    If you were small, bright blue and orange you'd soon learn to hide in trees ... especially when there are Kestrels about

    A nice set of river birds.
