  • Thank you John. I can sit for hours in a peaceful and calm state just watching all the creatures that come and go around me.  I even talk to the Robins! :) Ian
  • The little creatures recognise us Pentaxians as mellow and harmless souls.  We're not out to scare them with enormous(e) white lenses! ;)
  • Hello Walt The juvenile Kingfishers from the last brood seem to have left, probably chased away by the adults to go establish their own territory, so it's a bit quieter down the hole right now. The ...
  • Yes, very close.  It was about 1.5 metres away from me.  They are usually very skittish but I guess it got bolder the longer I sat there.
  • Created discussions Bank Vole - Cuteness Alert!
    Was up for the sunrise as usual this morning.  Looked pleasant out so off I went to the usual spot to see what the Kingfishers were up to.  Unfortunately they were very elusive today but as I ...
  • I never bothered with trying any video using a Pentax DSLR until a few weeks ago.  Prior to that I'd always used my Panasonic FZ200.  However, having shot a couple of clips of a Kingfisher perched ...
  • Nice set. :) I always liked Savannah, the old colonial buildings and Spanish Moss covered trees.  We used to pass through on a detour down to Florida every year so we could stop off at the Tybee ...
  • Thanks Nic I spend hours sitting in the same quiet spot watching the Kingfishers.  There are also so many other species there to see, as well as mammals - cute little silver / grey Mink at the ...
  • If you get there soon Walt, it's become a bit busier!  Went there just after sunrise this morning and a second brood have fledged.  As far as I could tell, there were 3 more young ones flitting ...
  • Great shots as always Arijit. Always nice to just sit and see what comes along.  The Brahminy Starling is a very striking looking bird, as is the Woodpecker. Ian.
  • Hi Walt I managed some shots of one of the brood from Wilstone Reservoir back in early June - see below. The other shots I posted are from Marsworth.  The Kingfishers there are very active early ...
  • Thanks Arijit I was sat in a local bird hide once and heard a couple of twitchers (birdwatchers) discussing the exotic birds of far flung places, and wishing they had some similarly spectacularly ...
  • Got that one covered Ron.  I'd use the 1.4TC so I have a bit more space around the perch to capture them as they fly into view. :) My Flickr photostream: https://www.flickr.com/photos/32585204@N05/
  • Thanks Ron There is certainly something about watching and photographing them that becomes addictive.  I always seem to meet a couple of other locals doing the same whenever I drop in to see them. ...
  • Having been in the office at 5:30AM, I decided I'd had enough by midday so decided to scoot and head home, then diverted to the reservoirs for a walk and ended up (as usual) sitting watching the ...
  • Fantastic!  Always great to see the new Hummer shots Ron. Only ever seen Hummers a couple of times when I've been on trips to the US and never had a long enough lens to photograph them.  Oh well, ...
  • Replied in "ot" hospital
    Hope you get well soon and heal quickly.  Recuperation time probably best spent behind the viewfinder! :) Ian.
  • Created discussions Gateway to Buckinghamshire
    Thought I'd share this one. I pass through here all the time on my way to Tring Reservoirs, my usual hangout and walking spot, and love the view from the bridge over the A41 as it runs down to the ...
  • Replied in Dragon Fly
    Lovely! Female Broad Bodied chase if I am not mistaken.  Not seen any yet this year, well not close enough to photograph, but they should be appearing in larger numbers now that the weather is ...
  • Thanks for that Ron. I knew about the mimicry of other birds but didn't know they were quite so aggressive.  I have seen them many times being attacked by Magpies, but those black and white ...
