Birds in the New Forest


Link Posted 28/02/2019 - 17:36
Spent the afternoon at a new (to me) spot in the New Forest yesterday, saw a group of photographers had set up a little disguised feeding spot for the birds so thought I would get a few shots in.

K-1 and 150-450mm WR ... Light was pretty much perfect although a few different backgrounds would have been nice

Excellent, I love the two Blue Tits peaking over the branch. All about the light behind you this time of year.
