over 9 years ago ---Long-billed Murrelet

taken with a Canon 1DIIN and 300 f4 with 1.4 converter -- many £1000 later how much better are images now than then -- its all a matter of degrees -- the 1DIIN though did have an excellent AF system that many modern cameras would struggle to match

Kumlien's Gull

a late decision to head up for the Barmston Kumlien's Gull and it was howling and cold with occasional hail showers -- bird was feeding on mussels and occasionally trying to rob the Oystercatchers of their's -- nice subtle bird and as usual with gulls so much difference in appearance with differing lighting 















Richard's Pipits

windy at Flamborough as well -- the second time I have seen a flock of 3 in the UK the last being at Donna Nook in autumn --
