Birds in flight – Sabkhat Al Fasl

Taking photographs of birds in flight is tricky and results can be disappointing but if you get it right the photos can be very satisfying. I had a go at a few birds, with all these photos being grab shots. That is I saw a bird flying and grabbed my camera and tried my luck. None of the photos are very good but show some interesting aspects of the birds behavior. At some stage I will try to actually concentrate of taking some proper photos of flying birds as I have some good results in the past. The photos below show Purple Swamphen a common breeding resident, Western Marsh Harrier a common winter visitor, Great-black-headed Gull and uncommon winter and spring passage migrant and Squacco Heron a common passage migrant and winter visitor.
