Young Grey Wagtail, Cornwall
11/05/12Young grey wagtail, near Tintagel
Another photograph on an overcast day at the top of Rocky Valley in Cornwall. This fellow was happily hunting at the waters edge catching flies and other such juicy titbits. We waited for a while for him to get a little closer, for the light to pick up a bit and for him to catch something. I know, I am not fussy.
This was the result; ISO 2500, f8, 1/500 sec with Big Bertha at full stretch. We saw a few grey wagtails around and they really are handsome birds. The day got a bit wetter as I recall and we ended up back in the 'van scoffing scones, clotted cream and strawberry jam. It's a hard life...
