Charles, 'our' skylarks look far less colorful than 'your' meadowlark (not in flight though)

I was walking the Pembrokeshire Coastal path and a bird flew by out of the corner of my eye


Pigeon | A7 III and FE 70-300 G OSS

You can imagine my disappointment, such a prosaic bird in such a lovely location.

Sometimes one browses through old pictures and finds fine ones previously missed

It only happens when there are so many great photos to review. Not sure that this one would have slipped through my library unnoticed.

thanks, Brian
I was photographing at high speed at the time.
I came home with over 1500 photos in 3 hours' time.
So it is no surprise I missed this one and I'll probably find another one at some moment in time.

I know the feeling, I have been sorting out my recent photos from the last few weeks, but there are few thousand per day (α1 can take so many shots in just few seconds), so this can be a hard chore...

Here is one example of my recent bird in flight shots:

Razorbill (Alca torda)

α1 + Sony FE 5.6-6.3/200-600 G OSS @ 600 mm, f/6.3, 1/1600 s, ISO 400

Cool indeed. Never seen one in my life. Where did you shoot it?

Being a sea bird that likes to live on somewhat remote outer islands it may not be the easiest bird to see. And apparently the southmost location for these is Heligoland in Germany.

These birds have a colony at Haverörnen island in middle of Finnish Gulf. There is also some common murre (Uria aalge) there, spot the birds with thinner and sharper beaks. Last Saturday I took part in a birding cruise that visited the waters around that island.

α1 + Sony FE 5.6-6.3/200-600 G OSS @ 600 mm, f/6.3, 1/1600 s, ISO 250

I think I will post a larger selection of pics from that cruise into the Open Views once I finally sort out the hundreds of pictures...

On the plus side, given the location it's probably a genuine Rock Dove, rather than a feral 'pigeon'. Living in London I very rarely get out to locations where 'proper' Rock Doves live.
