This blog is intended to follow my progress this year in my pursuit of obtaining some worthwhile bird photographs.
Very much a beginner, with limited funds but almost unlimited time, I want to capture photographs that are more than mere record shots. I am not expecting many rare or even unusual species, but want to do justice to any bird that cares to pose for me.
Wish me luck and good light.

Bored in Belgium

Posted Monday 14th May 2012 at 10:59 by Denny Woodthorpe
I'm spending the week in Belgium, babysitting for my daughter and son-in-law who are away in Venice! I have my camera here and they have a decent garden, but with four(!) cats, it is a brave bird that ventures to the feeders.
I am just going to sit out in the sun to try and practice my flight photography as there are several magpies flying to and fro. A blackcap flew into the hedge yesterday and I heard a cuckoo quite close last night, so this area would be a great place to do some serious photography if it wasn't for the cats. Last winter my daughter even had a crested tit in the garden.
Damned cats!
I intend to try shooting at f8 this afternoon without IS switched on. I will report back on how it goes.
