907 – photographing birds

One of the people I follow on FaceBook, goes by the name of The Dorset Rambler. He posts every so often (not every day). He takes some lovely photos whilst out on his walk, and has the right kit to get some lovely pictures of local birds as well as sunsets.

Now, I do have the opportunity to get some lovely sunrises, and if I was inclined to go out in the evening, I could get sunsets as well, but what I don’t get many chances of are pictures of small birds. I’d go so far as to hazard that this is not entirely because I don’t have the right kit. Mostly I think it is opportunity.

In order to get those chances, I think you have to make them. I have been sat at the waterfront and in particular starlings are not massively afraid of people, nervous and wary yes, but not afraid. I’ve had a couple of nice pictures.

What frustrates me are birds like sparrows. I like sparrows. There are several places around town where there are bushes, and and you know this because you can hear them. It’s like either a massive family argument or like a 1950’s housing estate with everybody leaning on their fences talking at the same time.

You know there must be dozens of them hiding in the bush, but can you see them? Do you think there’s any chance of getting a picture of them? And of course as soon as you get near them they fall silent, only to resume their shouting when you are walking away from them!

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
