Early Bird

07th May 2018
In truth I cannot really say I am a morning person. It's a struggle to make myself get out of bed at 4.00am but having made the effort it is joyous to be out in the fields as the sun rises. The bird song and calls alone make the effort worthwhile, with Skylark, Yellowhammer, Lapwing, Whitethroat and of course the ubiquitous Robin and Wren, all singing their little lungs out full blast!

There is something so positive about a new morning, with the promise of excitement and surprise. Although I always go out with a plan of what to try and photograph, the local wildlife doesn't always get the memo! So I am always thrilled to come home with a few images of whatever has popped his or her head out long enough for me to photograph.

I particularly love the dewy grass at this time of year and so do the baby bunnies who get their ears washed while they play and feed. Who doesn't love a baby bunny? Unwittingly I also photographed a leveret, it was bouncing about with the baby bunnies and I just thought it was a very small newborn rabbit..now I know differently it is a oh my goodness moment!

The youngest Roe Stag still looks super surprised and bewildered by the whole process of his antlers emerging whilst the hares continue to vex me in either being too far away or way too close!

It's still wonderful to come home with stories of shots missed as well as achieved..all in all I'd much rather be out there in the fields than missing it all by being still asleep!
