A little Brown job !

By Mike_Young
Morning all from a very murky misty drab Haslemere,

As always I'm very pleased that many of you have enjoyed my last upload. Thanks for all the comments and votes. Special thanks go to my lovely award givers, all have been contacted by PM.

Late news... after posting this today I've received two HC's from the EPZ team, one for Northern Gannet and one for Grebe reflected. Thank you very much, a brilliant gift for my Birthday week

Todays upload is the enigmatic Cetti's warbler, more often heard than seen with its loud and explosive call. They usually keep to deep cover and most of the time all you get is a brief glimpse of them as they fly quickly from cover to cover.

Todays images are very much grabbed shots, captured while travelling from one hide to another at Titchfield haven NNR.
The light was very low so a high ISO (2000) was already set on the camera, shots all handheld at 850mm focal length.

An excellent selection, Mike, considering how difficult it is to photograph this secretive little bird, even in good light.
Congratulations on your two HCs. Smile

This is a most wonderful collection of this warbler---all very clear despite the environment!

Congrats on the awards!

Great to get shots of this elusive little bird. It seems to tease - warbling away loudly - but always just out of sight. We've spent many an hour waiting for one we can hear to show its face. You must have tremendous patience to get a whole series like this. Very well captured.

Superb

Version one as it frames the subject perfectly
