I'll Be Back!!

Went up to Fowlmere to try and photograph the ring-tail Hen Harrier that has been coming into roost every evening since the 23rd January 2013. Very overcast so not an ideal day, but the purpose of the visit was more for a recce eg what time did the bird arrive, what did it do, where did it go and where was the best place to view it from.

It flew in at about 5pm by which time, with a combination of dusk and a dull evening was EXTREMELY poor light and I had to wind the ISO up to 5000 to stand any chance. The bird flew around for a few minutes, a couple of times coming reasonably close, but the poor light made focussing very difficult. Anyway, I did get a couple or record shots, and I will be back on a clearer evening for another attempt.
