Speeding Bullets and Elusive Warblers


Absolutly gosmacked whern the yellow thing in the sky came out around 4pm, as forecast, amazing.  So with good light and lots of Sand Martins "buzzin" Marazion Marshes I had a go a getting them first with the 300mm and then  the 600mm lens. Quite hard work the way they shoot all over the sky. Limited sucess was hoped for and gained.  Also managed to get a shot of a Warbler which wasn't playing ball for the camera but patience paid off. Stonechats, Wren, Jackdaw amonst the other images:


Swallow over Marazion, not quite in focus but good enough for a record shot


Wren enjoying the afternoon sun.


Nice capture of the Male Stonechat


Mrs Stonechat with a tasty morsel


Warbler in full song on the marsh


Jackdaw flies past


One of the many Sand Martins.

Great variety there Bob.
Love the Stonechats, and well done on the flying bullets.
They are not easy; but I have great fun trying.

Thanks Keith and Mark for the feedback. I put the Swallow down as a record shotit is just not quite as tack sharp as the other flight shots.
