Dartmoor encounters

A walk on Dartmoor today , great views and weather.

There were plenty of ponies around and some very inquisitive cows.

The heather and gorse were in flower with tiny yellow cinquefoils below.

I like the photo above it’s a gorse patchwork of colour repeated across the moor.

We were trying out the new lens to photograph birds using a tripod.

This stonechat was just too far away to be a perfect photo but was fun to watch.

The bird below was more successful but I’m not sure what it is , we will be looking it up later. I think it may be a young bird.

We are learning new things every time we use the new lens. Hoping to increase knowledge of photography and birds. It’s definitely enjoyable learning !!

Any ideas to identification please comment .
