Nov1/15 Tsawwassen Jetty Sun 12c
Following a month of World Cup rugby it was time to go birding. I suppose the piles of leaves in the driveway can wait a few more days!
First stop was the ferry jetty in search of Snow Buntings. After looking everywhere I instead came across a pair of Black Turnstone feeding on the shoreline.

|This is as close as it gets. This bird almost walked under my tripod. I held my breath so as not to flush it.|
|I include this purely because I like the composition.|
All the remaining images taken handheld with the Nikon D7100 and Nikon 200mm-500mm

I really like the soft background in this photo.
|The varied tones in this images evoke the time of year.|
|I watched this Peregrine Falcon swoop over the outer ponds at Reifel. Later on I found feasting on a sandpiper which it had just caught.|
|The discs surrounding the eyes of the owl allow it to pick-up the slightest movement in the undergrowth.|
