This was an interesting if challenging shoot down on the river in the Trough of Bowland.
It’s been a while since I’ve worked with just a couple of individuals for the best part of a day but the effort was worthwhile not least because it allowed me to discover so much about these active little birds. I had to first trail their movements along the river and noted that they circled clockwise and moved downstream collecting mayflies, stoneflies and the like to feed to their young.
Photographically it was difficult. I took just over a thousand shots and kept one hundred and forty from my initial sort through. However this set will eventually be culled to a more manageable number, but for this to happen I’ll need to detach from them some more and that’s not going to happen any time soon!
So for now, here are my top 25 shots. Maybe I will delete the other hundred odd before too long. After all, this tight selection catches the flavour of the day for me.
