Sky Lark

Pictured at Filey Country Park last Thursday evening in great evening light.

Canon 40D, Sigma 50-500mm lens at 500mm, f6.3
Their song everywhere there was lots of these birds in the grassed areas at the top of the cliffs.

Wow Mike for a picture taken at 500mm it is quite sharp! I love this bird and on the second picture it seems that it was aware you were taking a picture!

Thanks for the comments Chris & Xanabioticx. I think good light aids the sharpness.

Thanks Paul & Jill, great weekends weather. Really enjoyed seeing the Pied Flycatchers for the first time.
