A three-bird post

Amur Falcon - Falco amurensis

Despite what I said in an earlier post, I DID come across Amur Falcons again once or twice in the autumn.  Here are a few shots of one of these.

 It's a co-incidence the White Wagtail is in the frame, the AF paid it no heed whatsoever.

(Asian) Red-rumped Swallows - not an everyday bird, so worth an effort to photograph if conditions suit.  Every individual seems to be differently streaked.

Finally, Peregrine Falcon - this one has been around Mai Po for at least a couple of weeks

It's a cool 12 degrees outside today, I went birding but gave up due to the rain.

Must be a sign of my  - Ahem - "Maturity" !

  1. You are nothing if not a master of photographing birds in flight. As for maturity, I am sure that like fine wine aged in an oak barrel, it denotes nothing so much as superior quality!

    1. Thanks Stu - actually I'm getting too idle to carry the tripod here and there... hence more "BIFs" with the lens hand held.
