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
Thanks for dropping by :0)
