Aira Force

Late afternoon visit to Aira Force today produced little in terms of wildlife, although the autumn colours and running water was very atmospheric.

First attempt...

Had my first attempt at taking starscapes tonight, I've got a long way to go but here's my first try.

Unsuccessful Salmon

Yesterday I spent to day trying to capture underwater footage of Salmon, up in the Scottish Border Country. Lying along side a fallen tree by the river, fish were jumping every now and again nearby my camera, with one jumping almost directly above only a metre or so away from my face.

Unfortunately I failed to capture any footage, a new plan needs to be devised, but I did capture this little clip up on the Weir.

Eastside migrants...

Since I got back from Scotland I seem to have been missing out on some really good birds, both on patch and locally. I caught up with the Lesser Scaup at Marden Quarry last week, today myself and SW headed over again, picking up his first lifer of the day, and some brilliant views.

Next we headed to St Mary's in search of the reported Yellow Browed Warbler, walking from Old Hartley a crowd could be seen on the horizon, we arrived to find a Firecrest showing beautifully, SW's second lifer of the day. Here's a few images I managed, but look here and here for some images which show the true beauty of this bird.

… keep a look out and hopefully you will see some of my footage from a recent project at the Loch of Strathbeg, on Pink-Footed Geese.
