The Dartford Warbler (syvlia unata)
I was very pleased to get a shot of this little beastie. A really rather uncommon bird ( on the protected list) and I cant in all honesty say that I have seen one before. A real challenge to operating the shutter button as it seldom stays still for more than a second or two before diving for cover. I think that 'bullseye' target of an eye is unmistakable and makes an ideal focus point. I hope I have managed to get it right this time. I was fortunate to catch him in some natural habitat.
Hope you can find a moment to look large.
I am absolutely overwhelmed by the very generous response to the Tree Pipit. I thought it was lovely and it appears a lot of others thought so as well. Thank you all.
