Quite apart from the glorious trip to Skomer a few weeks ago, the other parts of the week away were just as good. A trip to the red kite feeding station yielded some excellent images – with the birds picking up not only from the bank but from the water too.
They are fast, and it took considerable time to get the birds exactly as I wanted them. The day being overcast, but without rain did actually help, as the light was good – very bright, but beautifully diffused with the overhead cloud.
Sometimes the rain and the damp of England can be a blessing.
Hopefully more to follow.
