Weekend Treat

Just a quick post before I sort out part 3 of the Antarctic cruise. Last week whilst putting an owl box up with my mate Paul Riddle, we went to look at a potential site on the land of one of Pauls' friends. It looked good, so in the week we quickly made a box for the said site, and this weekend we went to put it up. Paul has been getting some superb images at his Kingfisher site,so he told me to bring my camera, and if time permitted, we could call by and see if I could get some images too - he also said the week before he had seen Water Rail, but didn't manage to get any images. He had also seen Green Sandpiper there, so, Saturday morning, after picking up our brekki, we headed for the Kingfisher site. As you will see from the images below, all 3 birds were still present - and also a Grey Wagtail put in an appearance but sadly no images of it. What a great 45 minutes! So, 'thanks' to my mate Paul, and if you want to see Pauls' images then go to his blog - owlsaboutthatthen - you won't be dissappointed!
It was then over to the owl site to erect the new box. Fingers crossed for this new site!

As always, thanks for stopping by, and part 3 of our cruise will hopefully be following later this week

  3. I like the shot where the Kingfisher is looking straight at you. Not a bad set of birds to photograph.
