Popped out to Eyesworth Pond again this morning - this time trynig for Nuthatches.  Some success, using a couple of flashes to compensate for variable natural light.  Quite happy with these three portraits.

You can never have too many Barn Owl photos.  So here are some more of two of the ones at Bransbury Common today.

After trying to find the Mandarins a Eyesworth Pond, I spent a few minutes photographing birds on a log that some bloke had set up and smeared with suet.  Loads of Bluetits, a few Great tits and a Marsh tit.  A few Nuthatches about too, but they didn't really come down to the log.  I will try going back soon with a log of my own design, and try to tempt Nuthatches.

An early start this morning to get to Eyesworth Pond in the New Forest to look for Mandarin Ducks to photo.  A few about, but all hiding away in the shade.  As soon as the sun came out, they all headed off and hid in the undergrowth on the island in the middle of the pond.  But I managed to get a few photos...

On a very grey damp day today, I played with my wireless shutter trigger and some remote flashes to photograph Bluetits in the garden.  Mainly trying to work out how best to use it before I set up a better bird table arrangement.  One example photo below.
