Quote from: paruses on January 22, 2022, 05:11:39 PMQuoteWhat did you take them with? Are you all set up on the feeders? They are in my garden which is tiny, but that means I am close to them shooting out of the window of my living room. Only 7 or 8 meters distance.It took a while to work out how to get these. Getting a good pic of a stationary bird is easy but trying to get good in flight pics is quite difficult. You can't use auto focus because they are too fast, they leap/fly from the hedge which is about 3 feet behind the feeder, you have a limited depth of field and you have to choose a focus point where the action is. Eventually I found a place to focus that yielded some good results. Just behind the feeder, seems obvious in hindsight. You have to use continuous shooting and take quite a few pictures to get good ones.

Quote from: confettiinmyhair on January 23, 2022, 05:02:59 PMI recognised the sea defences.I walked along the dunes near Waxham and saw lots of seals a fortnight ago. It's a nice alternative to the Horsey tourist trap and parking is free on laybys near the church.
Quote from: Twit 2 on September 12, 2021, 11:07:16 AMYeah, plenty of seals there still. Blakeney and Horsey are the two big hotspots, especially during winter breeding when there are hundreds on the sands, but you can spot them in the sea most of the way round the coast all year.I camped out on the dunes last night, smoking weed and seal watching. Beautiful warm, still night, gorgeous sunset. Paradise:https://streamable.com/nujvzf

Quote from: jobotic on February 04, 2022, 01:00:01 PMWent for a bit of ride on Monday, nice bit of buzzard and kestrel action. Field full of either Redwing or Fieldfare (was at a bit of a distance) - anyone which are more likely?Ended up at Cliffe Pools but it was so windy there was bugger all about apart from my favourite ducks and a lovely Little Grebe. Wish I could take photos.
