Another trip to the Pyrenees for some vulture shooting. As in 2012, we had 2 days with a vulture feeding session seeing Griffon Vultures, Black Vultures and – of course – several Lämmergeier. Furthermore we had a session for a Golden Eagle pair on the third day. Haven’t worked out all my pictures I took, […]

Close to the lighthouse Obereversand there are always Common Linnets and later the year starlings in the wild brier hedge. and as a short interlude, a panoramic version of the lighthouse (without tripod at 200mm).
It has been a while that I did some bird photography. Since some days there is a little wren every morning in a tree close by singing loudly his melody and he does never get tired. So, I decided to take some pictures. While doing so, also an Eurasian tree sparrow and a Chiff chaff […]
2 days at the Nature Reserve Feldberger Seen. We booked 2 sessions with White-tailed Eagles feeding, one session at the hide with the Lesser-spotted Eagle and at last another time the Kingfisher. The sessions were good but I was not running with luck. Lost several times the tracking while the eagle and the Red and Black Kites were […]
Good but not brillant weather for another look at Cuxhaven’s Kugelbake area for some seafowl. Some Ruddy Turnstones around at the jetty. Shots were taken with the D500 and the Nikkor 200-400 (with and without TC-14).
Brillant weather and very good time for shooting some local seafowl in Cuxhaven near Kugelbake monument. Will be the last time this year.
Around 100 birds of this species are around Cappel-Neufeld area. The fillet there allows for nice positioning of tripod with camera. However, no close-ups possible there, so one would need good amount of focal length for some shootings. Used the D500 with the Nikkor 500f4 and TC-14 mounted on the Berlebach Uni-16 with Wimberley WH-200 […]
Very bad weather for doing some sea-fowl shots but I wanted to get out and do some. Not a lot to be kept on my disk though.
End of October, so, time to put the feeders back. After a short while the birds came and started to enjoy the diverse food that is offered.
Went to the Rehdener Geestmoor to see the huge crane crowds during migration season. Up to 20000 birds are out there. Well, weather wasn’t good and so also the pictures went. Anyway, some impressions… Very early morning shots of the geese also being in that area. Thousands of birds suddenly going up. Unfortunately the cranes […]
