    Thank you for your comments, stay safe and well. John Edit next day: now it looks underexposed! I find it difficult judge exposure sometimes.

    Another shot of the Red Kite which was here on 5 May. It (or another) was here two days later, on 7 May. An auspicious start to the summer, I hope. Thank you for your comments, stay safe and well. John

    Not a macro shot: taken from about 12 feet away*, with the 100-400mm at 400mm. *[edit: wrong! just checked the distance with Nikon laser rangefinder, those leaves are 10 yards away]. Thank you for your comments, stay safe and well. John
  7. Eurasian Blue Tit

    Eurasian Blue Tit

    Thanks for the comments on last Thursday's Red Kite. Yesterday (Saturday) the same bird, or another, was here. It was much higher up, allowing record shots only, but it's good to know they seem back after five years without one. After all that excitement, back to normal with a Blue Tit. Thank...

  24. European Herring Gull

    European Herring Gull

    I almost missed seeing this bird, having leaned out of the window and looked at the top of the next block, just in case. Since I started digital photography seven years ago, there's only ever been a Carrion Crow there, but on this occasion, there was this whacking great Herring Gull :-) Thank...

    Eurasian Blackbird

    Another visitor to the substation roof rainwater pool, a female Blackbird. I got plenty of shots with its head under water, or thrashing about with masses of spray, but here it's taking a momentary rest. Getting clean is hard work. Thank you for your comments, stay safe and well. As Spike...
