Bird Spotting in London ~ 5th May 2021

Post by Pen Pusher »

I hadn’t intended doing any bird photography as I walked through the Royal Park’s as I was trying out the new Sony FE 24mm f/2.8 G prime lens but the birds seemed to be very obliging and let people get very close to them as they posed for photographs.

If you stand still for too long in the Royal Park’s you can get accosted by a grey squirrel running up your leg looking for some nuts.

:D :D The London wildlife can be pretty cheeky and very used to people, but that squirrel up the leg is new to me!!

Good shot of that Heron, they're usually a bit more twitchy and don't let people get so close.

I'm guessing it would be rude to ask whether the squirrel found any nuts..?
