Happy New Year to you all ... here is one from the first day of the new year, a Heron posing in front of the hide, odd this as usually they will take flight at the slightest movement.

Come up to Pennington mate. Your beating them off with a stick, don't even need a big lens.

Here are a few of the last photos I took last year. I'm in the process of flogging my camera and getting a new 'un this week, (bought a couple of records though lol) . Redwing, Kestrel, Nuthatch, Buzzard and a couple of nice tree pics. Hopefully be posting again soon. Keep your Great Photos Coming, All the Best folks

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fantastic! Specially the one of the krestel. Where I lives there's a Krestel that every day is above the building next to the mine. Frequently I can see krestels, buzzards, Bonelli's eagles and with a bit of luck some astors or any "Accipiter nisus" (I think is "Sparrow hook"…?). There was a time that I makes some acceptable photo with my analogic Zenith camera with 50 mm objective Helios… (some photo of Gypaëtus barbatus, Neophron percnopterus,…) but the real great photographer of birds I knows is a long time friend (both of us formed an ornitologic group); he got a great equipment (a Buchlander with 250mm zoom and duplicator in the late 70's!!) and have some books published some with photos by him and illustrations by me (I'm a great fan of some great bird illustrators in the UK as Terence Lambert and some spanish as Olegario del Junco). A great salute from Tarragona (Catalonia, Spain).

Here's another slot canyon on Aragon Prepyrinaican mountains:

Nice Pictures John. Any idea of what camera your after? 

Steve 

Cheers Steve, been using a Sony Cybershot bridge camera with x35 zoom, looking at a Panasonic Lumix with x60 zoom. I've usually got 3 dogs in tow so need something compact but want to get a bit closer and in my price range lol.

I shoot with Canon as you know but the lumix gets good reviews and so does the fuji bridge cameras. Endless choice mate. Be interested to hear your choice

Brilliant pictures Andy . Love those spectre pictures especially , I don't spend enough time in the hills for anything exciting like that

Steve 

PS thanks for the kind comments 

Right place and all that 🙂 Was hoping it to be all clear, then wishing for an inversion but I suppose a spectre or four will have to do 🙂

Buzzard  ? . I'm assuming 

Steve 

I also think is a buzzard. Here in Spain buzzards (Buteo buteo, "ratonero común" on spanish and "aligot" in catalonian idiom) usually have the bellow parts more clear but there's also some ones who come from North Europe during the winter and are shadily colored.

Heres's my sons some years ago, Whe lives next to the "Costa daurada" but prefers a bath on the river than on the beach:

Almost half way through January already and I'm only now posting up the "most liked" photo for last month. That honour goes to @Winsford Soul for his classic capture of a robin. Congratulation, and well done! 👍📸👌

Massive thank you very much for the likes and comments ,it makes the sometimes hours spent trying to get a picture worthwhile when you see what people think about your pictures.

Great picture Steve , the Robin looks in immaculate condition , the one that comes in to my garden looks a dirty chap  his/her white plumage is filthy, it will use the feeders and is well fed but it seems adverse to using the bird bath.

They do look very small to be fair....gazebolets...baby ones. Although, for me, I think I would have called them summerhouses or just "posh sheds". It's a lovely photo though, really makes you want to get outside and take in the air. God, I sound like my grandad. Actually, speaking of grandads and sheds. I'll post a photo of his shed later. It really should have been put on the Listed register for sheds.

I was also confused by the name but the locals insisted it's their claim to fame:)
