Pied Flycatcher


This first winter Pied Flycatcher was at Gibraltar Point in Lincolnshire on Sunday when Chris and I paid a visit. There wasn't an awful lot on show, although we did find a Richard's Pipit, a fairly scarce visitor to our shores from Siberia, but a bird that was extremely camera shy, to say the least.

I am still getting to grips with the DSLR, experimenting with settings etc. There is quite a lot to get my numpty head around, but I am endeavouring to become a better photographer, which will hopefully become apparent in the future! I am still some way off though!

      They are a summer visitor here too, this one was resting and feeding up before departing for warmer climes over the winter.

      It's nice to have a DSLR now, but it is going to take a long time to get my head around certain things, being a complete camera numpty!
