godwits on ice

just realised the ridiculous spell checker is default setting in Yosemite -- Apple thanks! -- now turned off

sparring Common Buzzards

a stand off then a quick battle over a corpse -- struggling with heat distortion from the sun and cold wind and hanging the camera out of the window over the car bonnet

Pacific Golden Plover

pretty sure this bird is a Pacific and not American but it was 500m away -- working on some really poor images taken with 7D2 and 500 f4 plus 2xIII in poor light but a bit of video with iPhone 5C and Svaro 70x95mm -- excuse the language and jumping!

a few close gulls

no doubting the IQ in good light when birds are close

AF baffling

this is what seems odd -- 7D2 and same lens converter -- 3 shots in straight sequence -- 1st and 3rd sharp middle on way off

Iceland Gull revisited

some perched shots today -- mostly 7D2 with 2x II and 300 2.8 II -- a couple with 5D3 and same lens / converter -- which ones?
