It’s been a long time since I last posted, primarily because I’ve been on an extended trip to South Georgia.  This image was taken on a magical dawn at St Andrews Bay in mid January.

A female Ptarmigan from Cairngorm.  I saw more than 200 Ptarmigan this week on the tops but surprisingly for a confiding species this was the only bird that allowed approach.  I wonder whether shooting pressure is causing this timid behaviour.

Now the easterly winds enjoyed here on the east coast have turned westerly bird excitement has died away.  The last hurrah came at the weekend when on Sunday at Walsey Hills this Long-eared Owl sat patiently while its many admirers clicked away. This image taken with the Nikon V1 and adapter on my 400 mm f2.8 lens.
