Desert Wheatear

A rare but almost predictable east coast november bird.This 1st winter male was found on monday pm near cromer point, exactly to the day of the last one and not too far away., about 15 years ago. Walking down the path towards the site this bird flew towards me, almost landed on my shoulder, and gave stunning views in perfect light for about 30 mins. My first pics with the canon eos 40d, hope they are all so easy, thanks dave for site details etc. Poor flight shots show rarely seen black auxillaries, what next i wonder?

Very impressive set of shots Terry, I take it the bird showed well.

Must ponder the a 40D.

Thanks Dave, the perfect bird, everything just right, bird flew towards me, too close to focus at times, but the light was superb.
