Cettis warbler

May 09, 2016  •  1 Comment

Summer is here, so its time to get back to blogging my photography trips, after work I often visit my local are (countryside) which is a short 10 minute walk from my home to see what birds are in my locality, and early last week I heard two bird song`s, and those were the Cetti`s warbler, and the Grass hopper warbler, I did manage to see the Cetti`s warbler on a few occasions, the Grass hopper warbler sang its song but stayed well hidden, I did manage a grab flight shot of the Cetti`s warbler that week, but was unable to photograph the bird perched. Now even more determined and with plenty of spare time available this week, I opted to go look for the Cetti`s warbler early on Sunday morning, the sky`s were clear blue and the temperatures had soared to mid 70s, so very pleasant indeed, it only took me a few minutes to locate the bird due to its loud song, and I spent the next few hours willing the Cetti`s warbler to land near me on an old farm fence post, the bird did oblige, the shutter sounded on my Canon 7D, a quick look at the LCD screen and all was looking good, I had finally managed to capture a shot of a cetti`s warbler perched, and out in the open, what a fantastic end to the day, image below.
