Talon spotting

Having been a bit starved of quality time with the camera in recent weeks I reluctantly had to neglect parental duties this weekend to mend relations with the Canon 7D Mark II. As well as depriving me of the opportunity to watch Wareham Rangers U-13s concede eight and get dumped out of the Dorset Youth League Cup at the first time of asking, this required me to try photograph a variety of passerines and waders. Not easy when they were being terrorised by the following:
This Peregrine over Keyhaven lagoon flushed the waders half way to the Isle of Wight
Tune in to next post to see if I was able to photograph the Long-billed Dowitcher which was among them
This Sparrowhawk caught a thermal over a warm Middlebere on Saturday morning
It posed for pictures before having a tilt at one of the Chiffchaffs I was photographing
Kestrel at Keyhaven


  1. Actually it was 6-1 and it was a group match so they're still in it!

    1. Only 6? And more Sundays given over for group games? Happy days!
