Scilly October highlights

The images below were taken in October 07 using a Nikon D2x, 12 mega pixel SLR. This camera boasts a very handy "High Speed Crop" function which effectively doubles the focal length but halves the mega pixels. Thus, the focal length equates to just over 1000mm ! Nice. All the images are tripod mounted (Manfrotto MN443 carbon fibre with 128 fluid head.)
The Woodchat Shrike was caught regurgitating a pellet. The Wren image is also a favourite as I waited for 20 minutes before the bird appeared on my side of the mallow bush. It stared at me for just long enough to take a burst of ten or so images, this one being the best.
