I manged to photograph the Holly Blue and one of the Brown Argus...........
|Brown Argus ( I took quite a few photo's of it!)|
|Unknown Moth -anyone ?|
After an hour I decided to walk a circuit of Migrant Alley, finding the 40 strong flock of LINNETS, a few GOLDFINCH, HOUSE SPARROWS and two PIED WAGTAILS. I was constantly checking the sky in the hope of seeing a Black Headed Gull go over as I haven't had one yet this month, they are seldom seen here in May, however I got something much more exciting fly over - an OSPREY (97,66) ! WOW! absolutely fantastic! I' ve had the odd Osprey go over on Autumn passage before, but this is my first on spring passage :-) I tried for a photo, but had a 400mm lens plus a 1.4 converter on, which I was using for the Butterfly close ups, this meant the auto focus was not working, and trying to manually focus on a flying bird with a lens of 560mm is near impossible ( especially when your over excited!) I got a record shot anyway :-)
|Osprey!! Yesssssss! :-)|
