I did not find the carmine rosefinch I was looking for, but I was able to take some nice pictures of common linnets.
I also wanted to have a look at the Eurasian dotterel sighted near Cuxhaven. So I drove there on Saturday and looked, but there was nothing to discover. But I had luck with a bluethroat. This Sunday morning in the morning again there and looked. Yes, there were 10 to 15 Eurasian dotterel present, but […]

Today I took some infrared pictures with the modified Nikon D80. About 4 more weeks, then it will be worth it with the foliage on the trees. Both images were taken with the D80, Nikkor 16-85 and a Hoya 720nm infrared filter. Editing was done in Photoshop and Lightroom on black and white.
Duhnen on April 26, 2020. Spooky emptiness on the beach. Just a couple of strollers are on their way. If one thinks about, what’s going on here in this weather at this time of year…
