088/365 Long tailed Tit

One from the archive when I was shooting on a 20D!  Image 088 is of a Long tailed Tit.  One of my favourite birds and one that I really need to point my lens at again.

084/365 Lapland Bunting Calcarius lapponicus

Todays image, number 084, is of a Lapland Bunting.  This particular individual was photographed at a well known photography hotspot known as Salthouse, where during the winter months, small numbers of Lapland’s join forces with the more numerous Snow Buntings around the coastal pools here.

083/365 Flying Fulmar Fulmarus glacialis

Yesterdays image, number 083 is of a flying Fulmar.  The last fews pictures have been from the English county of Norfolk, so I tend to continue this theme with the next images. Fulmars are fantastic birds to watch especially over the sea, as they flide on their ‘stiff’ wings.

Image 013 is a portrait of a Woodpigeon.  This is one is from my ancient archives but I still really like it.  Although a simple pose and a very common bird I took this picture purely because of the red brick barn that was behind it which I knew would blur out nicely using the correct aperture and also the lichen covered wall it was sitting on.
