Canon's Ashby Priory Church

Canon's Ashby all but disappeared in the 14th century, due to the Black Death and land enclosures. The church of St Mary the Virgin is the ony remaining part of the cathedral-scale priory church built in the late 12th century from brown ironstone as part of a large estate now owned by the National Trust. As the main Manor house is closed on a Tuesday, I sheltered from the rain inside the church -here a few straight shots (next blog some more creative images)

Perfect Day for Holkham Beach

They have built a new Visitor centre at Holkham Beach which has added to its popularity and Saturday was the perfect day to visit the wide expanses of beach there. Though mainly people watching there was lots of wildlife around.

Experimenting with Fuji Pre-shots

Fuji have incorporated the ability to store images in the buffer prior to pressing the shutter which is a great asset for action photography. So here some shots I would have struggled with or been unable to capture without it from a diving  Goldeneye (spent lots of time previously trying to get this sequence) to a jumping Jackdaw going up to some feeders.

Pensthorpe Natural Park

Many of the species in the wader aviary at Pensthorpe are obviously breeding well. Here a few portraits before the action starts.There are large flocks of Bearded tits, Ruffs/Reeves, Black-winged Stilts and Avocets. Also photographed Redshank and Black-tailed Godwits. Light was not great most of the morning so 3200 iso and these are jpeg files.
