Taken at 6am this morning at Dawlish Warren in Devon. Quite difficult to isolate when hunting for food for their chicks, but I'm sure once their chicks are old enough to feed, I'll be able to get some decent shots of them perched and singing!!! Until then, this is my efforts.

all comments appreciated and thanks for the comments on my previous upload.


1d2, 500+2x, ISO 200, F8ish to F13, around 1/640th-1/1600th - haven't time to check my techs properly :o)

I've been watching these most evenings while waiting for the Barn Owl to come out, not managed to get close enough for a shot yet though.

Nice work

Up early, but obviously worth it! Super shot - nicely composed. Techs probably spot on :o) . Tiny nit is the tip of a twig intruding on RHS of frame. If that was cloned out there'd be no nits at all. Nicely captured with a beak-full!

If you don't call this a decent shot, then I don't know what IS! Wonderful, superb.
