I'd been and seen it when the crowds were just enormous, but today I went to photograph the White Crowned Sparrow at Cley, it was a long wait for several obscured views of the bird and a few reasonable record shots of it. Its been here for some time now but it is still pulling the crowds, this makes it problematic when the bird shows as its not easy to move into a good position... I'll have to go back on a weekday!
Todays drive home however was very productive, I've had my eye on this modern agricultural scene for a while, all I needed was the right light, colours and sky... OK I'd have liked a shower to wet down the polythene too so that I got stronger reflections, but I can save that for another visit as I am still very happy with the shots I got!

I'm still waiting for the crowds to subside so I can get that Sparrow at Cley, meanwhile its worth milking some of the other posers for all the photo possibilities available.

I used the car as a mobile hide to get these shots; perfect shooting conditions, good light, an elevated track affording views over the hedge, and a very distant background that allowed me to use small apertures and still have diffuse colours behind the birds, it was only the waiting for the birds to perch in the place on the taller twigs that needed some time; but with a flask of hot coffee and the Sunday Express crossword to do, it was a very nice way to spend the day. A small set of images, including one of the female, from the 17 gig I shot........
