Gunners park

I brought a new camera yesterday so what better place to try it out.
Canon 1d mk3 with a 400mm f5.6 lens

I was hoping for some stonechat photos but a redshank will do !! 

 Then on to southend for some med gull action

can't wait to get out again.

1 Year on !

Its been a long time since my last blog and some changes along the way. 1st a change of job which has now settled down so hopefully more time for me! 2nd a new kitchen which was the our garage which  was lots of extra work for me and now complete so more time for me! 3rd I am thinking of getting a new camera which will need more of my time which sounds good to me! 

Anyway I did get a small amount of time for some birding, so some photos of when I did.
 Desert wheatear from Gorlestone suffolk in the autumn .

stonechat are fantastic birds and would never get bored of clicking the camera with these around,
Wallasea island with the lads 

At the weekend half a dozen redpolls visited the garden which was a garden tick for me !

 and this fella from this afternoon in the garden.

Hopefully not a year until the next blog!

Southend Pier

On Sunday I joined Shaun Harvey at Southend and had a couple of hours on the Pier .
The sun was out but very windy .
With plenty of med gulls and turnstone it didn't disappoint .
 These skylarks were over northweald airfield on Saturday one was very pale which got me going .

 At last nice and sharp

fire cracker

After a few hours of strolling around Knighton wood in Buckhurst Hill looking for a Firecrest on Sunday morning, Shaun managed to find what we were looking for and not long after that a 2nd Firecrest  appeared ,we then had an hour of trying to photograph them which was fun !!! . The resident Mandarin duck was a little easier to photograph and all in all was a good morning's local birding .
