Catching Up!

With hundreds of shots taken in the past few days Its almost impossible to look at them all but I spent a little time this afternoon going through some of them. Whilst photographing the Wood Sandpipers the other day at Reculver there was also a quite obliging Greenshank and Common Sandpiper, more species that traditionally you never get near too a Reculver but a rare chance was had to grab a few shots.

 Common Sandpiper


Yesterday prior to the marathon run to get the Pectoral Sandpiper was a gentle affair looking for butterflies where a good number of shots were taken again of a few species.

Brown Argus

Hopefully out in the morning, I may try again for the Pectoral Sandpiper and hope if everyone is at work that I may be able to get a few better shots than I did yesterday without every cyclist, jogger and dog walker flushing the bird. Failing that another look for the Mandarin and Long tailed Blue I suspect if the weather is in my favour.

 Common Blue

Clouded Yellow

  2. Brilliant birds and beautiful butterflies.

  3. I like that blue butterfly

  4. Your butterfly captures are superb! Such beautiful species! How like to find such a cooperative sandpiper!
