Photographs taken on Sunday 28th. March

On Sunday we went to Titchwell RSPB. Unfortunately Titchwell is undergoing serious work to stop the sea encroaching further into the marsh. In the meantime Parrinder Hide has been lost and there are only two hides in the reserve. It was only at the Fen hide that we saw any birds. We had distant views of a marsh harrier and fairly close views of some snipe - but in reeds so they did not make good photographs. In fact the only photograph I took that day that I like is this one of an immature black headed gull. It was hovering over the pond in front of the hide and diving into the water - at it's reflection?

Taken with my usual kit with 1.4 multiplier - 1000ISO f8 @ 1/5000sec.

Walking out to the beach we had distant views of skylarks but not decent photographs.
