Peregrines, Chichester, March 2005
It seems like every year, after spending cash on better equipment, I get just slightly better photos of the Peregrines on Chichester Cathedral.
The first year, the pics I took were with a 3x zoom lens which just about captured enough information to identify the bird by shape. Last year the 10x zoom on my camera allowed me to see markings etc. This year the 10x zoom lens was beefed up with a 1.7x attachment, and you can just see the glint in the bird's eye, even if the pics are grainy and heavily cropped. Maybe next year I'll have a telescope attached to a camera, and get... well, just slightly better pictures.
Chichester and Fishbourne
This is my attempt at some solo birdwatching, which is to say, going out on a cold, windy day, take a lot of photographs, and hope that I can make them out when I'm back somewhere warm. A couple of short movies I took on the day didn't make the cut - I took them more to get the sounds of the Redshank warning calls, but all I got was the sound of the wind.
To cut to the chase, there's a lot of Redshank here, along with Dunlin, Oystercatcher, and Grey Plover. Oh, and the usual Mute Swan, gulls etc.

Checking back in on the peregrines a few months later.
Just a few pics in and around Chichester. Plenty of the Cathedral including trying to find the best setting to capture the sunset.
Peregrine, Chichester, February 2004
Various pics taken of the peregrines nesting on Chichester Cathedral. The ones at the bottom are very poor, taken with a 3x zoom camera for identification purposes (okay, okay, to bait my Dad with). The others are only slightly less poor, taken with a 10x zoom.
