This is probably the final post from my recent combined family holiday and bird photography on Texel and so I thought I share a few images of the beautiful bluethroat and some of the landscapes of the island. The bluethroats are found in the dunes down on the SW corner of the island, but the morning I was there looking for them, the light was very poor. Typically, they performed superbly, almost taunting me knowing I was struggling with very high ISO to try and get a reasonable shutter speed. The landscapes on the other hand, were all done leisurely with the 645Z firmly mounted on a tripod so that I could use a very low ISO and slow dhutter speeds to get the vreamy goodness out of the 50mp sensor! I’ve lots more images to edit, including yellow wagtail, tree pipit, brent goose, common tern and a few neutiful flowers such as intermediate wintergreen. Not a bad trip for four days, especially given I was only out shooting hard core wildlife for a few hours overall. I suspect I will be back very soon to the island, maybe even this autumn if the wader migration is good.
