I was lucky enough to go on the coast recently. I came across a flock of snow bunting.
I love buntings, they are “real” birds.. 🙂
With this cold weather , it was
"easy" to photograph birds, mammals, the cold make them more approchable. That is why Scandinavian wildlife photographers have got it so easy...they have the weather "helping" them . We are not so lucky here...
Several red kite came to feed….
Sometimes, it was crowded with birds
At last, we had a frost. Minus 4 last night.
They had forecasted a beautiful day, and for once they were right! 🙂
I did not want to miss the ice….
Here are some picture of kingfisher fishing amongst ice….
It was misty and cold ….
But the kingfisher has got to eat, whatever the weather
Amazing to see that bird diving amongst ice….A first for me.
Perched on the ice….
Yes, I was back at my kingfisher hide his Sunday. I had another cracking time with the blue arrow…..This female is quite reliable. I decided to name her Lucie !
Lucie made some cracking move, in water and outside water…
Lucie landing on one of my perch
It was like watching a small blue duck in water … 🙂
Flying away with the prize
A wide angle view of the river…..
I am completely mesmerize by kingfisher…. 🙂 🙂 🙂
I think that I am going to build a permanent hide. Like that I will be able to photograph them in any weather….(I am using a canvas hide at the moment)
The Fruits season has started
A bit of fishing too
I love the colours on this picture….
