Meadow Pipit

Headed down to Maiden again and there was a whole flock of these little birdies!

Shag under attack

Went down to Girvan harbour and watched this shag catching dinner. He would spend a couple of minutes under the water and as soon as he surfaced the gull would try and steal his dinner, always unsuccessfully as the fish was down his throat so fast.

Redshank at Maidens

It felt like a beautiful Spring morning today down at Maidens. No wind and the sky gave off a fantastic light. I wanted to try and get close to some of the waders down on the shoreline. The tide was coming in so I got myself into position just behind the sea-weed tide line. I laid down a plastic mat and lay down covering myself with the camo netting and had the camera resting on my bean-bag, and waited patiently.

Long-tailed Tit

One of my favourite birds.
