I’ll start with the barn swallows. I took these photos yesterday of them swooping high above farmland at Falmer.
Being Falmer I also kept my eyes open for the local rodents. After a relatively barren period they do seem to be back, though not in quite the numbers of a few years ago.
As always there were plenty of gulls and ducks, but less common is the common sandpiper. These birds are very shy and extremely difficult to approach.
Plus one from today, a splendid white duck (a pond resident), imitating a water lily…
And just because I can, here’s a portrait of Long Nose, the young male fox in an ultra relaxed frame of mind.
Camera note: all photos taken with the Canon 1DX Mark II and EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM lens.
