Taken this morning at Otmoor RSPB reserve whilst waiting for Hen Harrier to appear. Have to find something to do otherwise you get cold stood still for 4 hrs!

I saw this Stonechat when I was there last week but didn't manage to get any as close as this one.

Canon 20D
400 f5.6 L + 1.4x
Manual Focus
f8 @ 1/125 ISO 100
Processed in Lightroom and CS2

Thanks for looking.

Thanks for the comments.


Yes did get a few frames of the Hen Harrier but nothing worth posting unfortunately as it never came close enough to the hide.
