North Cornwall (just for a change)

We went to Porth Reservoir on Saturday for the Ring-necked Duck. This was the first male we've seen but it stayed too far away, even for digi-scoping, so this is just a record shot.
We also went to Walmsley Sanctuary and even there, everything kept it's distance. Nice to bump into Steve Rogers and his wife, and a big thanks to Steve for all his camera advice(Sue).

  2. Any pic of a rarity is an acheivement! And once again, with the Buzzard, you have done justice to a bird which is hard to photograph well!
    All this makes me pine for the sunny south-west!

  5. Brilliant Buzzard photograph John or Sue. I think you have well and truly mastered a very difficult photography medium John. I know just how hard it is out in the field ..but you make it look oh so easy. Well done.
