Strumpshaw Fen

A visit too Strumpshaw Fen was certainly eventful, if not producing any images of note.

The usual Marsh Harriers were active but mostly at some distance , and a heat haze added to the problems of capturing nice images. Also present was an escaped Harris Hawk , complete with bells and jesse's, the local Marsh Harriers and Crows took great exception too this foriegn intruder , and were constantly bombarding it , the poor thing wasn't getting a moments peace.

It had escaped from Kelling in North Norfolk , and was being rather stubborn , about being recaptured, having foiled all attempts by the owners  the day before.

The only images of note , were of a strutting pheasant , very loud , and very proud.  

 

The other event of note was me taking a tumble with the camera , and lens. This broke the two times converter , and the lens , and camera took a bit of a bang .

I intend too send the camera, and lens to be checked over , and calibrated.

This will give me a break from photography for a few weeks , time to recharge those battery's.

 

 Other images taken were of the local Geese , doing what they do.

Thanks for dropping in. ( No pun intended :0) )

A fantastic series of shots Andy...especially the wonderfully colourful Pheasant! I suspect that being without your camera will be a bit like having a part of you removed so I hope it's not away for too long :)
