Hello Kitty


A close up of a Black Legged Kittiwake in Menegawa this morning. Annoyingly the harbour was the only place in the whole area under clouds, there were lots of them to-ing and fro-ing but my BIF attempts were not great (also I had the 1.4 extender on). White birds against dark grey skies just doesn't work.

Not much else around. A few Crossbill in the east of town, that's about it.................

  1. Bad luck about the sky. I rather like Kittiwakes so hope you get some blue skies soon!

  4. It seems impossible to get decent flight shots against an overcast sky, as you say. Still, BL Kittiwake is a good-looking bird.

    1. Thanks for the comment John. Gulls seem especially poor against grey skies.................
