Tony McLean's East Yorkshire Wildlife Diary

Wildlife photography in East Yorkshire

A Fox-trot

Just a quick update. I’m back from my trip to Turkey and once more, photographing the wildlife of East Yorkshire.

I spotted this red fox late on Saturday evening. I watched it prowl around the shore of the lake for some fifteen minutes. No sign of any cubs yet, but I suspect that its den is close-by. I intend to visit the area again tonight to see if I can improve on yesterday’s efforts.

A Barn Owl was also active during the morning and evenings at North Marsh. I managed to get a reasonably sharp shot of it flying low over the top of the river defences. Yesterday morning when I was waiting patiently for the Barn Owl to show, I stepped outside the hide for some early morning sunshine to warm my bones. I opened the door and the bird was sat staring at me from a branch nearby. By the time I had retrieved my camera it was gone. Ho-hum!

I intend to write a trip report from my recent vacation in Hungary. Although, I am not sure that most regular folk would consider getting up at 4:45 am a holiday but you’ve got to get up when the light is best. Instead of writing a boring diary of the events of my trip, I hope to give everyone a flavour of the country and the Cappadocian landscape through a short essay on three images from my trip.

More later…
