You never know _ _ _ _ _!













Yesterday was absolutely glorious here, temperature up to 27C, no wind, beautiful light but not too hot. No birding, a few small jobs to do.
Today was supposed to be cloudy, yes it was very cloudy, dark, light showers. Having set off originally for a walk, the weather slightly dampened our enthusiasm (whimps). Having ridden around a bit we find ourselves sat on Holbeck Car Park eating our lunch, it brightened slightly no birds around.

Having no bread Pat put out her Pork Pie crusts (not mine - no way) and a broken digestive. Fear not, having begun to get dejected and thinking of a blank weekend in come the Med Gulls which have been back a few weeks. Three adult birds and a second winter bird.

So I have a good time getting flight shots of these birds without even leaving the car. Just getting ready to go and we spot a Common Kestrel at the top of the hill quite close. I managed to get some shots before it flew off.

It just shows you never know what to expect.

Exactly Mike, you never know what to expect when you go out! And this has been good for you, because these flight shots are wonderful! Well done, for a bird that is not that easy to get!

Well done Mike, It's wonderful to get these special moments.

Roy said...

That's quite true Mike and they are great shots.

The best moments are usually when you least expect it. Nice series of pics Mike (and all from the seated position!) FAB

Thanks Chris, Lyn, Roy & Frank.
I have to confess I got out the car for the Kestrel!
