During the last two months, I have been following the adventure of 7 lapwing nest. Out of the 7 nesting lapwing only one did reach the end of incubation. Only three chicks survived after the first day and only two after a week. It is incredible how many lapwing nests get predated. Almost all of them except one! Life is not easy for the lapwing. Most of the nests were predated by crow and magpie….
Sometimes you have really successful days…Yesterday was one of those. It was a fox day!
For the first time in a year, I went to my hare paradise. I saw very few hares. I think that all the rain we had last year’s killed a lot of them. I did not see any of my old friends…I am really sad about this. They were no hares but they was a fox and what a fox. I stayed with that vixen for more than half an hours. At the moment the meadow is a dandelion sea . It was incredible. I took the pictures with the 500mm and the 2 time converter. (I like that new 2 time converter).
In the evening, I went to another fox den to see if they were any cubs.
While waiting to see if they was any fox cub. I did photograph other species….A gang of rabbit
In that meadow, sheep were everywhere…
And suddenly at long last four fox cub came out of a den…I “just” need to photograph them now. it will not be easy
Sometime, things do not work the way you want them to go. I was on a recce and was spotted by this clever vixen. I have been spying that vixen for weeks…but this time she was sharper then I was….I will have to be better next time…
