Mere Sands

I thought it had to be about time I got out, seeing as my 1 post a week went out of the window.

It's still really dull with the odd bit of sun if it breaks through the clouds, that said the light wasn't too bad on Sunday so Mere Sands it was. The last time I was here I was looking for butterflies and dragonflies. They have done a lot of work here too trimming back some of the reeds so I am really looking forward to spring coming and see what visitors they get there.

Anyway here are a few snaps that came out ok.

The first shot is of a Female Reed Bunting, it was the camouflage that made this image stand out and the colours.
Secondly a Chaffinch sat for quite a while in a tree near to the hide, It was pretty far off but its cropped ok.
And finally a set of Robin shots, I don't normally go for the feeder shots, but how can you resist when they come in really close.
All photos taken with a Nikon D70 + Sigma 170-500mm

Not a bad couple of hours out, Role on spring and the late nights.

Mike.
