Passing the Coracle pub on Sundorne Road, I noticed a large flock of them in the air and they landed right beside the car :-) I figured it might be a good idea to park up?
Setting the scene....
You can only take so many 'berry' shots and I was after something 'different' today so quite a bit of the next few hours was spent with the small (up to 130mm) zoom lens.
Zooming out, here they come on a couple of feeding freenzy occasions!
The greater depth of field means more birds remain in focus!
At one stage there were up to 50 bird descending on this young Sorbus! A veritable feeding frenzy....
After a minute or so, the mass exodus.....
Giving an opportunity for multiple birds in flight!
I've got to check through a few 'berry shots' now but jumping the gun on the attraction at Featherbed Lane, there was liquid sustenance readily available!
I did actually make it there in the end...... Berries and drinkies next :-)
