This morning drove again to the place named Baumrönne in Cuxhaven to hopefully photograph the reed buntings. It was quite windy, so that not too much was going on. With a few situations I had then but luck.
Yesterday morning a few reed buntings were cavorting at the tree canopy. Also from yesterday are the pictures of the pheasant and the gray heron at Pastor-Draegert Weg. A rough wire mesh fence was in the way of the pheasant, but this is only a small area in the plumage where the contrasts are a […]
Approximately 10000 starlings are currently seen on the Cappel-Neufeld compensation areas and the adjacent dike. From the observation tower a few avocets could also be observed and a meadow pipit was quite busy supporting the breeding.
Short test of the Fringer NF-FX (FR-FTX1) adapter with the X-T3 and the Nikkor 500f/5.6 PF. The adapter works excellent.

The eagle tour didn’t work so well with my photos. The D500 with the 300 PF was “too close” and with the D4 I missed painfully the group focus. The kites were a little better…
My fourth visit to the Feldberg lake district. 3 years ago I had been there last. For the first evening we had booked the Milan tour. From the light it started a bit too early, but at least it was ok. Meanwhile on the tour a grey heron comes to the bait fish. That was […]
