Frampton - Black Tailed Godwit
As I entered the East Hide, it was clear that there was a photographer already in the hide...with a flock of Black Tailed Godwit right in front of him!! I very very carefully set up my tripod and settled down next to him - thankfully I hadn't disturbed the birds! The light was glorious and I took a few initial images, with the only real difficulty being isolating one bird from another as they fed along the shoreline in front of us. All of a sudden though, something spooked the birds and they flew off to the centre of the reserve. But they returned a short time later, and whilst I would have liked them to stay longer, I was happy with the selection of images I was able to get.
