A short visit to Drift

Well the camera has had the cobwebs dusted off and made an an appearance again in the field! Well it has been very busy at work and home and it is also that quiet time of year for bird photography. Well they are my excuses for the lack of posts. Ok I hadn't been out for a while so I binned the chores for a rainy day and set off to Drift on the off chance of seeing a Black Kite which has been reported in the area. No such look with seeing that, a Turtle Dove was also reported I did manage to get that although my view was somewhat obscured. A walk down the far end of Drift passed the hide proved fruitless, but it was still great just to get out with the camera again. No brilliant shots but a record of the days events below.

Turtle Dove, just wouldn't go on the wires to give me a clear shot!!

Shame you missed out on the Black Kite Bob.
Good to see a Turtle Dove, let alone a picture. Nice one.

Hey, good to have you back! Thank you for sharing the pictures, especially the Turtle dove. Wild bird photography is one of the toughest, even if you have the desired birds around, let alone when they decide to take a vacation. Nothing lacking in the shots.

Perfect timing on the Swallow and very nice to see a Turtle Dove.
