    Inspired by redthunder’s pics of a Buzzard thought I’d invite any other STW’ers to post some phortos they’ve taken of Raptors 😀

    Lacking in photographic skill and quality – just a little snapshot of a pair of juvenile buzzards hand raised and released last year.

    Taken back in mar 09: the male sparrowhawk came to visit us over the weekend, he sat on the fence at the bottom of the garden for almost 10 minutes! He was keeping his eye on the bird feeders in the gardens to either side. I had the time to get out my good camera and fit the long lens, but even the big lens isn’t quite long enough – this 100% crop is the best I could get

    We get sparrowhawks through the garden quite a bit, fantastic to watch them chasing something

    matthew_h – wish I had the pic of my attempt at capturing a shot like that.

    I’ve got a shot with a splash and a spray of water, but no bird. Way to quick for my reflexes!!

    Quite pleased with the little owl on the tap shot. We’d taken pics of loads of big, impressive birds of prey that day but most people agreed that the one with the most personality was the little owl.

    Brilliant shots here. I’m getting a bit obsessed with owls recently after seeing a tawny(?) near my house. What length lens are you guys using for these?
    Also, anyone know any good places to see some owls in Yorkshire?
    Cheers

    OWL PROWL

    Friday 29th October 2010
    – In Search of Short-eared Owls at Aust Wharf – 5.30 – 7.30pm

    Meeting point at Aust Wharf relief road.

    This new event is an opportunity to visit one of the best sites in the region for wintering short-eared owls. We will take a leisurely stroll along the bank of the River Severn on the Severn Way, and will stop periodically to talk about this nomadic diurnal owl and enjoy lots of photographs from my archive. All the while we shall be keeping an eye out for the first migrant short-eared owls of the year.

    It is recommended that you bring binoculars, torch, warm clothing and suitable footwear to this owl prowl, which is not as child-friendly as the other events on this list.

    This is a free event funded by South Gloucestershire Council

    For more details please contact John Morris at johnv.morris@southglos.gov.uk

    Saw this bugger sat on my garage about 18 months ago. Not what you expect in the middle of Accrington.

    I’m informed it’s a sparrowhawk. Best I managed was “it’s a bird.”

    Apologies for the ropey pic, it was a bit of a rush job…!

    Using a bridge camera, i’m finding wild bird pics i right challenge, the wide even on close cropping the pics are poor 🙁

    Captive birds are a little easier, but i much prefer seeing them in their own environment and without signs of handling.
