A drizzly Saturday

White-tailed Eagle

A wet miserable White-tailed Eagle on a wet miserable Saturday afternoon near Mukawa.

Lathams’s Snipe habitats have been damaged by the absurd number of solar farms spring up all the time and replacing grassland.

Plus they’re difficult to perch on…see how this one slid all the way down.

This perch the next morning was slightly better…

Some baby Ospreys

Not great photos but an interesting scene. These 3 baby Ospreys must have been born very very recently. With the harsh light, strong wind and heat haze it’s almost impossible to get sharp clear shots.

Several pairs of Black-tailed Gull nest on the same rock and things went crazy when a Peregrine swooped in and grabbed a nestling. With my 2X T/C on and everything on a tripod it all happened too quickly to get any photos.
