  1. The Water Pipit is a nice picture and you were quick to photograph the Sand Martins they are very difficult birds to capture.

  2. Well done Ashley… like the new header pic. I think I should go birding with you – I may learn something!
    Hope to see you at Stiths.

  3. Great Blog Ashley,look forward to seeing more excellent in flight shots.

  4. Hi Ashley great pics The new 400mm is working well for you , great lens for walkabout I can vouch for it

  5. Great set of photo’s, I can see that you will get better and better.I have had a few disasters with my photography lately

  6. Nice photo Ashley. I think your Water Pipits are Rock Pipits though.

  7. Thanks Paul, you can blame Simon Taylor (Stiths warden) for the pipit mistake I wasnt sure so I asked him.
