My What a big mouth you have.

My nephew, Lea, had made it his objective to shoot Cuckoo chicks in the nest this year.  An invitation to join him this morning was too tempting to miss, despite a 3.30am start!
One more day would have been too late as this particular Cuckoo was jumping in and out of the nest.  I am sure within 24 hours it would have flown.

The first shot taken just after 5.30am was at 3200iso to "try" and keep the warbler sharp!

The eyes have it.

I have been working on Water Voles over the last week or 2.  They are quite obliging apart from the time of day/lighting conditions.  I had to resort to 1600 iso for this shot.

The foxes on the local lane are still very active, especially on a Tuesday evening when the residents put out the rubbish for the morning collections!

Had the good fortune to have this image published in 4 national papers along with numerous web sites.  It makes all those early mornings worth while!
