Afraid I'm not very good at identification, main reason I take a camera when I go out for a walk. Tried to find this one on the RSPB Bird ID site when I got home, but not having much luck
Seen today on the bank of a lake at Ouse Fen, Cambs, no fear at all and just stood whilst I took its...
Whilst out on a walk yesterday along the Ouse Way between St Ives and Holywell I spotted this rascal.
Long way from home (the Wash presumably) in the non tidal middle reaches of the Great Ouse, not great photos, but nice to have as a record
Crop from about the best shot I got
In case you need it, here is the new revised manual for the upcoming 7D firmware updates http://www.canonrumors.com/2012/07/canon-updates-the-eos-7d-manual/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+canonrumors%2Frss+%28Canon+Rumors%29&utm_content=FaceBook
7D Firmware Version 2
If this is confirmed I can't see a 7D MKII coming anytime soon
Some good stuff in there though and quite unusual for Canon to upgrade an existing model so much
Went out with my wife today to Woodwalton Fen and pleased to see two Marsh Harriers
Driving back about half a mile towards Upwood we were totally surprised to see a large bird of prey overhead with an unmistakably very forked tail.
Not 100% sure, but as confident as I can be that it was a Red...
As part of my work yesterday I was requested to test the line that feeds the BBC webcam for the Peregrine Falcon Nest on the Birmingham BT Tower
Not sure when it goes live, but its testing ok and ready to go, look forward to seeing it in action
Went for a wander over to Fen Drayton RSPB, only a short walk from my house or one stop on the new fangled guided bus from St Ives
All very tidy and a lovely new hide (see pic below) along with some new benches here and there too, took the camera, but only had a 70-200 and the light wasn't...
Just bought a dome hide and wondered if anyone had a recommendation please for a lightweight yet comfortable chair
I'm not getting any younger and want something that will alllow me to sit for a while without too much discomfort
Just seen this in the lane next to my house, guessing it could be a Queen Hornet, but not too sure.
A positive ID would be welcome please, big lump whatever it was as you can see next to my lighter
I purchased a RSPB gift membership for a friend on the 13/12/10 and it still hasn't arrived as of 31/12/10
Did email them to confirm it was sent, but can't see bad weather being the problem between Sandy and Cambridge
Very disappointed seeing as it was two days before their Christmas deadline...
We have a regular visitor when the back door is open, cheeky Blackbird comes in and eats cat biscuits from the cat's bowl
Silly old moggy just watches him although I do fear it he may one day lose patience seeing his food being gobbled up
Could the biscuits do the bird any harm? they are...
Have I seen? UK, Cambs
Today whilst out walking I saw a large bird of prey, it appeared to be predominantly grey with some black on the wings.
I have gone through the two books I own and seems it might have been a Hen Harrier
Could I expect to see this bird in Cambs at this time of year or at...
Just joined having seen a link from a photography site I use quite a bit
I live near a few good sites for spotting and photographing wild birds and will soon have more time on my hands to enjoy it more
Off for a look round now, see you soon
