Point & Shoot…

My first general impression as I got this brief glimpse was that it was probably a reed bunting…I had just arrived, this was my second picture of the day…I only managed to take one frame before it flew away…if it had stayed just a minute longer I would have taken 30-50 frames (sometimes more)…but it stayed there just long enough for me to click once…

So my evening progressed further into my current obsession to search and photograph a levitating marsh harrier…they just hang there so perfectly…but getting close enough is far from easy, I’m beginning to think that England will win the Fifa world Cup before I succeed with my goal…

Later that evening, I returned home to upload the evenings’ attempts…my mouth fell open when I realised that it was a reedling aka bearded tit and not a reed bunting at all. Basically, in that one click I had captured my first ever sighting of a reedling and I didn’t realise till several hours later…

  2. Congratulations with the first sighting. And the picture turned out lovely, too. I like the composition and the feeling of a late summer day – or evening.
