My what a stormy weekend, high winds, lashing rain and hail.
Mr Uphilldowndale tells me the wind ‘had some north in it’; all I know is that a large flock of redwings and fieldfare have blown in.
I set off down the field late this afternoon to try and photograph them, but if I tell you that Spud the dog, Jammy and Dodger the kitten-cats insisted on coming too, you’ll perhaps understand I didn’t have much success.
The birds were soon spooked, and wheeled off into the evening sky
Not to worry, I rather like the silhouette look, granted it would be better if the birds were in focus…
And you’re going to have to squint very hard to find the bird in the next one, but I like the patterns made by the remaining stalks of the ash leaves.
One of the best views of redwings I’ve had was from the window at the dentists, but if its all the same to you, I’ll not go there again for a wee while.
