It’s still winter, and the weather is still miserable. Cold I can deal with, but what I don’t like is rain. It seems to be raining constantly at the moment, so any break in the weather draws me out. I decided on a crisp cold but dry day that I would head to the local bird of prey sanctuary which is 5 or 10 minutes from my house.
Being so local, The Raptor Foundation is a place I go to at least once a year. It would be rude not to. Consequently, not a lot changes from visit to visit so I have photographed a lot of the birds many times before. Sadly, as with last year, due to avian flu, there was no outside flying display.
If i’m honest, I didn’t go for the photography. I went for a day out. I just happened to have my camera with me so I thought I would play around.
None of these shots are ground breaking, but I was happy enough with some of them to share them with you. Hope you like them.
Hopefully the weather will improve in the coming weeks and I can get out more, but this trip was a nice one. It’s nice to have a place like this so local that you can just take a wander around.
I was gutted that there was no outdoor flying, but it was understandable given the circumstances. With any luck, next time I go I will be able to get some nice flight pictures.
Until next time. Thanks for looking.
