Osprey moved today from dead tree to power pole to the power line right over the canal. He did not do any fishing for me like yesterday but sang a beautiful song.

Love that Long-eared Owl. It's my favourite of all bird species, but despite trying for many years I've still never seen one in the UK (in most cases they're considered too sensitive to disturbance, so sightings are rarely made public). In the end I went all the way to Serbia to see them.

Red-shouldered Hawk. A friend's Nikon D3300 recently failed so I loaned her my A77 with the Sony 70-400 G lens. She found this too heavy but loved the Minolta 100-400 lens. Below is one of her first shots. She is thinking of switching over to Sony.

Had a torrid time birding lately, first a week when anything with feathers likely ended up blown over the NZ and quickly followed by a week when we got a months worth of rain in just over 24 hours.
So wasn't expecting much as I headed out this morning, much to my delight though I finally could confirm my hunch for last year that I'd found a Sacred Kingfisher nesting spot. Spent the better part of an hour watching a never ending parade of juicy bugs delivered to the nest.

Adult on the watch.

Next time I'll be bringing a tripod along as it's deep in the shade.
