A Barn Owl with his catch at St Benets Abbey this afternoon. I wasn't expecting to see one, let alone the three we did see (definitely 3 different, they were all hunting at once!) Heavy crop as they didn't get close (well not until it was too dark for photos :D)

A pair of Hooded Mergansers on our little lake -- first we've seen any this autumn! Hopefully they will be with us all winter and into the spring. This pair was actually swimming forward but looking back to be sure the other three Hoodies were also following....

Haven't fully identified this yet. I am edging towards a Rufous-winged Cisticola.

The engine of my best mate's car he has been building for two years. Project has just been completed. 2001 Nissan S15 Silvia. SR20DET, 872rwhp. No expense spared from top to bottom of the car. Unbelievable.

Will be doing a full photo shoot of it in the next fortnight.

Beautiful shot Dave! I'm terrible at bird id's but it does look very much like a Rufous-winged Cisticola according to Google! :)

Very nice. Can't wait to see some more shots Clint.

Sorry Timmy, hope you are OK with two photos of the week here. Once I shoot the car properly I'll post a thread up. This is the animal anyway. Just wanted to show anyone who is interested in it. 🙂

Week 44. The weather hasn't been favourable for native wildlife this week, and we wanted to get a final zoo visit in before our passes expire, so this is a shot of Enif at Banham Zoo today. She lost her eye as a cub, and has coped admirably since. She certainly had her one eye trained on me today :D DSC04079 copy.jpg

Very nice Kev. She's definitely got her eye on you! Did the eye AF still work?

Not that I noticed, but I have mine set on Human anyway, otherwise I lose tracking (not that I needed it here of course). I only use 3 modes now.

I see you already have your paws on an R5 mate! 🥳
Yep :) Only had it a couple of days and the weather has been awful since it turned up. I'm fortunate to have the a1 so don't really need it but there are a few articles I wanted to create for my blog. I might sell it afterwards although I'm also thinking about experimenting with renting some of my gear out in the UK next year and I'm sure it will be a popular camera to hire.

I'll swap you for a Toblerone and a bag of Haribo
