Last night Kay went out, so after work , I took my battered equipment out too Draycote Water , before I send it off to be checked by Canon.
My eye was immediately caught by a flock of Yellow Wagtails , the light was very poor , the birds small , and skittish .
Using the ridges to approach the birds , I managed to get within eleven metres , and hand held the images .
The crops are quite large, but beautiful birds.
Half way through the shoot , I got hit by ten minutes of hail , I was frozen too the core . Didn't bother these little chaps though.
Despite the conditions these beauties made it very worth while.
Others birds seen, Wheatear ( male ) , Linnet, Pied Wagtails, Meadow Pipit, Rooks , Kestrel , Great Crested Grebe and various Gulls , and Ducks.
Thanks for dropping by.
