Sunday 24th May 2020

It has been an odd week in many ways.  Very sunny days, far from being beneficial to photography, give a very harsh light during the middle of the day so I felt restricted to early morning or late evening. There are far to many people around during the evening, so it was a case of up early and this time, heading to Cambridge Research Park where several Cuckoos are about.

Only one distant flypast - frustrating as there were several calling most of the time.

While waiting, a nearby Whitethroat took to the air singing - worth a pop.

Returning to the car, I heard a singing Reed Warbler that performed rather well.

The next day, I concentrated on a flock of newly fledged Starlings in my garden. The shot I had in mind was backlit with the sun partly screened by a boundary hedge. Several screaming young allowed a close approach to get the shot, being far more interested in getting fed by a couple of very tired looking adults

It shows how a new approach can produce results. Under normal circumstances, I would never have spent a couple of hours in my garden photographing Starlings so the Coronvirus has at least one benefit.
