Flying Over Seven Sisters

I was fortunate to be over near Seven Sisters Country Park early this morning, while the bright weather was still holding. It was windy (on my return journey trees were down and one was partially blocking the road outside Newhaven), and the Canada geese and little egrets were active.

I’ll start with the egrets, which are now essentially naturalized native birds.

A small group of Canada geese were patrolling the fields, in ones and twos.

I can’t leave out the common mallard…

Or my first swift of the year. Few in number at the moment, but great to see them and a sure of improving weather.

No badgers or foxes tonight, but I’ve some good clips of both from the trail camera to put together (hopefully over the next few days).

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