Yes, sometimes getting too close for the lens attached.
Let me know when that tide's coming in won't you

Turnstone - Sheringham
The promenade in Sheringham is a great place to get up close to Turnstones. While I was looking forlornly for a King Eider Duck a few weeks back, I turned my attention to this much easier target. You don't even have to be looking for them and they will wander towards you, all very brave and brash. It doesn't bother me in the slightest and took my mind off the fact I was failing in my initial efforts.

I am amazed at how truly confiding Ruddy Turnstones can be. Years ago, in a bar on Tobago, we were sitting on bar stools with friends having a drink, and about thirty of these birds were scampering around the floor, picking up what I assume were small insects, or spiders perhaps, on the stone floor.ReplyDelete
Great to have birds come to you!ReplyDelete
Since I do not use a zoom lens I often must back off or settle for clipped tails and feet. Nice photos!ReplyDelete
