20 Jan 2013 In The Garden

21st January 2013
A pretty miserable weekend weather wise although the snow was nice and added some interest, however the light was awful.

We've had Reed Buntings visiting the feeders in the garden for quite a few weeks now and Saturday was no exception with about six birds in the garden, males and females.

Most of them are ringed so I imagine most if not all are from "The Eyes".

Male Reed Bunting

Settings: ISO800 f4.0 1/1600sec +2/3EV 500mm

Female Reed Bunting

Settings: ISO800 f4.0 1/250sec 500mm

We've also had a Brambling or two frequenting the feeders which is a nice change from the usual Tits & Chaffinches.


Settings: ISO1250 f4.0 1/100sec 500mm


Settings: ISO800 f4.0 1/320sec 500mm

Considering the photos were taken at between ISO800 and one at ISO1250 and through a glass window the noise isn't that bad really.

Thanks for reading.
