I *did* try
Just some of the many shots I took - they look great small...biut many were a bit blurry viewed larger.
You can see some of the shots larger by clicking here or on one of the images in the comments section below.
I was trying so hard to get a ground level shot of one of the birds flying directly towards me. But they changed direction and zoomed and wheeled about - as they do!!
I'd love to be able to fly like that!!
