Cheers.
Got lucky and had them preparing their nesting spot so had lots of shots on the ground, got a feeling they like checking out their surrounds before/after entering the nest as they more often than not sat there a minute or 2 before going in/out.

Open views thread of my weekly obsession.

If you setup a nice looking perch for them to land on a couple metres back from the nesting entrance, they will often use that to survey their surrounds prior to entering the nest.

This approach will also assit you in getting some really nice shots of them landing with wings in different positions and often with food and exchanging food with their partners.

Hope it helps.

Craig

Unfortunately for this time it won't help much, not driving another 650km round trip to put a stick in the ground
Keep it in mind for nest time though!
