testing a new lens.

Today’s pictures are taking using a new zoom lens. Quick trip down to our usual spot near Titchfield haven to try out my new Fuji 100mm to 400mm zoom lens. I was pleased with the results and hope to make full use of it while on our next trip in May.

The movement of flight.

Blackheaded Gulls now in summer colour’s at Hill Head. I spend hours watching these birds methods of flight. For me Bird watching is not always about watching rare birds often it is watching a common birds behaviour and just enjoying what you see.
