Another Day at The Lizard

Hi,  Thought I would have another go at photographing the Choughs on the Lizard again.  I think the Lizard was most likely the only sunny place in Cornwall. The Choughs though only appeared briefly for a minute about once an hour on average.  Still I did manage some shots but it is quite difficult to get the exposure spot on for these birds. A walk slightly further along the coast and I got some Grey Seals and a Sparrow in the grass. On the way back Steve Rogers pointed out a Spotted Flycatcher, but I just couldn't get it in the right light. So glad the Sun appeared at last, but need to get my self out of bed earlier to get the best lighting conditions for photography. Next weekend???

Great capture of the Sparrow Bob. Frozen just right.
The Spotted Flycatcher is one I'd like to see. Nice shot of him.

They look v good mate. Nice one of the flycatcher - the light was extremely difficult to handle as well.
