Not the easiest bird to photograph, with a short early morning venture out of the undergrowth and onto the roadside grass, then spending the day in what perhaps could be described as a shady dell.
Finally, a favoured route was identified and a hand held rapid succession of photographs obtained.
So the pictures... in non-timely order.
A smashing bird to see.
|Image from first sequence out on roadside grass... bad position for me with the pipit just over a ridge!|
|In the dark, dark dell. ISO 1600, 1/80th second exposure...|
|As above, in the "dell"|
|Finally in a better position for better images... handheld 500mm, ISO 1250!|
|and we're off!....|
