Young Reed Warblers - North Cave

The other bird shots last Sunday at North Cave were off these young Reed Warblers.

They were in the hedgerow above a ditch and at least three of them were seen. I guess I would not be so lucky with adult birds. Carrying my tripod mostly on my shoulder on the circuit around the reserve paid off. They say you should always use a tripod for wildlife photography but its not always that convenient or easy. I have a Cley Spy Mule pack so it goes on my back but once the camera and lens is atop it goes on my shoulder which 3 days later is still sore. But its worth it.

Hope you like the shots.
