Barn Owl - the chase

Allot of effort for a few shots, after driving round for an hour this evening in a spot I know that's good for owls, which i have done for the past few weeks I finally got shots of this owl. a very pale bird but still great to see. After these shots the owl flew out of sight, i quick dash to the car and a drove up the road found the owl sitting on the road side edge. After spinning the car around and upsetting a few drivers I managed to get in position. by the time i had stopped the owl again took off back to the field I photographed it in and not to been seen again this eve. I will be back for more

On Tuesday I went to try for the sand martins again but they seemed a bit flighty. Only to find a kestrel sitting on top of the face were the sand martins nest gave me a good opportunity to get some different shots of this bird.

I love the sandy colour background and the detail in the stones and soils

Bempton cliffs

Yesterday my 7D arrived and off to the coast i went, to find a fantastic day ahead. Gannets collecting grass on the cliff tops provided me a opportunity to put the camera through its paces. A
After much debate regards the sharpness of this camera I can honestly say this camera delivered. I was a bit concerned not taking my D1 MKII so if this camera did not perform I was missing some great shots.

the camera locked on and stayed locked and they are super sharp.
Also i have been photographing Fox cubs and hedgehogs photos to follow soon
