Well I may include something else as well, but I’ll start with the birds. They are all very common, but the light was nice and I’m still enjoying getting to know the new gear. I have to say I am amazed at just how sharp the lens is. Anyway, here’s a fine blackbird (male) who was hanging around Falmer Pond today.
We also have a good colony of collared doves locally. They are naturalized natives (they’ve been around the UK for about 50 years), but they are everywhere now. More delicate than our standard pigeons, they are pretty birds with beautiful red eyes.
Just one shot of the coot, caught as it was descending the bank into the pond. Again, the light was lovely.
I can’t resist posting at least one rat shot, but the rest of today’s will be added to the December rat album.
Camera note: all photos taken with the Canon 7D Mark II and EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM lens.
