After dragging myself out of bed at 2am this morning, I headed up to
the Snipe site to see what was about. I arrived at about 4am and the
place was alive with calling birds, that gorgeous sound that Curlews
make filled the air and I spent a good thirty minutes just listening to
it. After a short drive up one of the tracks I found a superb Pheasant
that was in full display mode ( shots to follow in the next blog ) and he
put on a fantastic show. As the sun began to rise I got into position and
waited for the Snipe show to begin; and boy did it begin. For the first
time a female of the species turned up, and the two males decided to put
on a display fest in an attempt to impress the rather dainty female.
So here are a few shots from this mornings session, all are just about
Full Frame give or take a couple of pixels for straightening.
Until next time, thanks for dropping by.
