Day 4-The RSPB reserve

Posted by
CElliottUK (Reading, United Kingdom) on 28 May 2012 in Animal & Insect.

The last full day of our trip was dedicated to seeing some White Tailed Eagles (also known as Sea Eagles) on their nest.
Shock! Horror! It actually rained a little
Umm, just in case I've confused you, this isn't a Sea Eagle, the 4th biggest eagle in the world, this is a Chaffinch!!

Feedling the rain while he remains so quiet & still is a marvel here, Chris.

Good setting choices to catch the fall of rain and I am watching the ISO, now. I bet they put a robin there over Christmas.
