Wheatear’s , and Pied Wagtails

The weekend was spent trying to photograph Wheatear, and Pied Wagtails, using the 7D, which I haven’t used in a while, apart from briefly at Gigrin.

The Wheatear were very flighty , with about six present , and the constant passage of Joggers , cyclists , walkers , and their attendant children did not make it any easier .

After a little while I managed to find a more obliging Wheatear. It has been my experience with these birds that while many will only let you get so close, you occasionally find one that is a little more accommodating, and will allow a slow approach within photographic range .

So here are some of my images, I hope you enjoy them, incuding a few different Pied Wagtail shots

A terrific set of shots from your weekend! It must have been wonderful to get fairly close to the Wheatear and I see you used the opportunity well with the resulting images! I have a real soft spot for Pied Wagtails, such charismatic little birds, so I really enjoyed those shots...especially the way it's peeping at you from around the rock :)
