Looking through old images yesterday, I came across this Reed Bunting shot. I remember shooting this bunting. I was at the heronry on a sunny day in April 2011, fully set up with my camera and 500 mm lens on a sturdy tripod. I was well hidden in a smelly mire.
Scanning the heronry, the bird suddenly filled my lens. The reason I remember taking this shot is that after hours of waiting, and almost giving up on the herons, shooting this bird was the start of the best day’ s heron photography I have had.
