KIMCOMANIA
EARLY MORNING ON BICKERTON HILL , February 2008
Every morning, as soon as the sun is up, I take my two labradors on Bickerton Hill. In January and February it is not light much before 8 o'clock. Normally I do not take a camera, as with two dogs to keep an eye on, it is difficult to concentrate on birds! However I did take the 20d and a small Sigma lens this morning - and a little later I regretted not having the normal 400mm lens!!

- the scene at the beginning of my walk

The long field (below) fairly near the top of the hill is a part of the hill where I frequently see raptors

 

This is where I really wished I had a larger lens!! The sheep (below) were at the bottom of the tree where the Buzzard was perched!!

 

 

I had great difficulty in taking the pictures of the buzzard and making sure that my two dogs were not tempted to run into the fields with the sheep!!

 

AND LATE AFTERNOON , STARLING ROOST, AT NEARBY CHOLMONDLEY

an amazing sight -which lasted for 30 minutes
