Won't be long before our wintering birds come in and the last of the ones that came here to breed head even further south. I'd like to introduce you to Babou, a Yellow Crowned Night Heron who likes long walks along the river and fresh crab dinners. I wish I had the 5DSR on to try and capture more detail and I think it has a lot less dust on the sensor :/ .

Jack and Alan - I fail to take single photo of Woodpecker in my vacation, despite of the big expectations... So, kinda jealous:confused:!
Here some from the last two Sundays (back on the Islands off course). I'm rather happy with the second bird - Scaly breasted Munia (Lonchura punctulata), up to now I was with only 2 +/- good photos of these. First photo - young Black-necked Stilts...

My first post so I'll make it a colourful one - European Bee-eater taken in Bulgaria. EOS R body, 100-400L lens at 400mm.
I love bee eaters, and that is a beautifully coloured one. We don't see them in the UK.
It's better to post a full-size image rather than a thumbnail.
