Three Very Different Birds

As the title says, today features three very different birds. Just one photo of each (the World Cup is taking its toll on editing time), startling with a fledgling green woodpecker, spotted early this morning on the grass area by Falmer Pond.

The second photo was taken early this evening along the Undercliff walk at Rottingdean. It’s a rock pipit striding out along the edge of the sea wall.

Being Rottingdean, there are nearly always fulmars about. This is my favourite of many photos taken as they flew along the sides of the cliffs. You can really see the tube-nose on this one (click image to enlarge).


Camera note: all photos taken with the Canon 7D and EF 400mm f/5.6L USM lens.
