Also, fortunately that it happened the day after a close encounter with a peregrine, and not the day before! I'm loving the fact that I can just spin the dial to one of my custom modes and be all set up for flight shots!
St David's is well-placed for an exploration of the cliffs and the RSPB reserve on Ramsey Island. For anyone making the trek there I heartily recommend Amber Cottage as a base. I could not have asked for a better place from which to conduct operations!

This is one I found whilst exploring Sheepwalk Lake in Shepperton - one of my nearest Surrey Wildlife Trust reserves. It was a bit quiet on Friday. Lots of tufted ducks, a couple of grebes and cormorants, thousands of water striders and judging by the bites I picked a fair smattering of mosquitoes too!
Also this weekend gave the Wildlife Photography Blog site a bit of a face lift!

I'm pretty sure that this bird is young one, and the other bird I saw was either an adult trying to move it on - or possibly a parent that it was mobbing for food. Either way it kept up its calling pretty continuously call for well over an hour.
