Robin singing amongst the blossom...

This is one of my favourite recent photos, taken on the 18th at Black Hole Marsh. The light was very dull so I had to use ISO 3200 (using the 5DSR rather than the 1DXii) but this is just about tolerable when the subject is close:

A quick check of Black Hole Marsh most evenings lately has yielded a single Dunlin (on the 20th) along with the lingering Grey Plover and 4 male Pintail which were still there today. Also many of the Black-tailed Godwits are moulting into their summer plumage and some look fantastic at the moment! Hopefully they'll pose for a photo or two before they move off...


  1. Wow!!! You captured an amazing picture of this beautiful Robin!!! Thanks for sharing:)

    1. Many thanks! The bird was certainly posing well for me.
