Some Hobby shots from Brandon.

Went to Brandon Marsh for the first time for a while on Friday morning and found a bright and warm day for a change.

Had a good walk round and found loads of Warblers about but took no decent shots (too many leaves).Most disappointing was to find a Cetti's feeding a juvenile at the base of a tree just to the right of the main path as you come to the golf course but the undergrowth between me and the birds was so tall I couldn't get a decent shot.What a bummer!!!!!

Best fun was had surprisingly from the Steetly Hide which is usually so disappointing for me but today a Hobby turned up and stayed for half an hour.What a merry dance he led me flying pretty close but at great speed,flying against the tree line when I'd got the camera set for a sky shot and vice versa so I ended up with a lot of silhouettes or burnt out shots and suddenly doing a verical climb so I banged the lens on the top frame of the hide window flap.

Did get some OK shots which would have been better if I'd got the camera set up correctly.Click to get a larger version.
