Some Falmer Bird Life

A very short break from the fox cubs (I’m gathering lots of cute photos). I was at Falmer today for work and visited the village pond.

Major league yawn….

The geese were also around. Moderate numbers at the moment, and it’s slightly too early to see any goslings.

A buzzard flew overhead…

Meanwhile, the young rabbits were out enjoying themselves in the adjacent field.

Over on the University campus the herring gulls are nesting… young gulls next month I would think.

And ok… here’s some fox cubs from yesterday…

Camera note: all daytime photos taken with the Canon 7D Mark II and EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM lens. The fix cubs were taken with the EF 100mm f/2.8L macro IS USM lens.

    Thanks! At least I am getting out and about a bit more at the moment. And the garden is always a joy!
