Have been trying to get to grips with the Better Beamer flash extended, thinking I might use it more for bird photos on dull days.  Tried it out this afternoon at Langford Lakes.  Treecreeper and Swan.

Definitely not wildlife.  But I took some photos of the village fireworks this evening.


Went looking for Short Eared Owls on Salisbury Plain this afternoon.  No luck (probably still a bit early in the year, and too early in the afternoon), but got a couple of Kestrel photos.

Got good but brief views of a Hen Harrier hunting over the reeds at Arne this monring.  Also distant views of a Marsh Harrier.  A few shots below.  Quite pleased with the one of the Hen Harrier coming straight towards the camera.


Another trip to the Somerset Levels today.  Some improved photos of the Cranes - still distant, but better lit.  Also, Grey Heron and my first UK Cattle Egret.  And finally, some sort of farmed Emu deliberately placed on the levels to confuse me.
