Was just reading Artur Morris' blog Birds as Art linked through fantastic Woodlark shots on Birding Sometimes and was wondering if I could euphemistically get away with calling these soft focus! In actual fact they were taken in one of the few moderately sunny moments yesterday at the dunes between Cresswell Pond and Druridge (generally known as Bells Farm). Unfortunately the little Twite was bathing and wouldn't keep still for my hand held fixed 600mm zoom and consequently lacking in focus. Nice bird though. Please do not enlarge.
