So I admit I am getting a little obsessed with these magnificent birds but they will be gone before long and I am keen to spend as much time as I can with them before it is all over for the year. I am hoping to get images of the chicks when they fledge from the nest, before they head off into the world on their own. The only way to achieve this is to be in the right place at the right time – hence the obsession.
I am not alone in my obsession either, there are several photographers making the almost daily trek to watch the falcons. Often we just sit and talk with the birds watching from above for long periods of time without any images being taken at all. We have so many now that the bar has been raised and the shutters only click away when the birds are doing something interesting. You can only have so many images of a bird sitting on a tree branch 🙂
I am hoping to visit the falcons again tomorrow afternoon if the weather holds out. Maybe even if it doesn’t. I am sure I could photograph them from the car window if I tried really hard! These images are all from today. Enjoy!
