A few flight shots from Norfolk.

Here are a few flight shots I took on the recent trip to Norfolk.Nothing special but very enjoyable trying for them.It can also be very frustrating and you end up with a vast collection of empty sky shots.Well I certainly do.

Here is another shot of one of the Shorelarks I was pleased to find at the end of the East Bank on the shingle at Cley.




Very surprised to find these Brent Geese still here on the muddy creeks at Morston quay.





Took these Oystercatcher shots at Thornham harbour.These are the closest flight shots I've got of these chaps.





Another Marsh Harrier shot.This one taken well inland at the N. Creake craft centre.




Had loads of goes at getting a Skylark flight shot but they are always too high in the sky for my lens.This one was a little lower but not low enough.




Only included this shot because I think it's a Whimbrel and as such my only flight shot of one.I got the shot as it flew over Arnold's marsh at Cley.If it's not a Whimbrel ignore.




For an hour I struggled to get any shots of the Terns flying just out at sea from the shoreline at the beach car park at Cley.The darned things dart around too much for me to lock on the focus.







Also in the Cley beach car park I tried to get some shots of the Swallows that were whizzing around.What a game that is !!! Make sure there is no one else around if you have a go as you will swear a lot.I certainly did when I missed shot after shot.

Sounds like you had a great Holiday, some cracking shots of the Marsh Harrier.
