Counting birds...more from the lighthouse

Remember that these photos are taken with a little digital pocket camera with not much zoom, and only an automatic focus, so don't expect much....
Oriental Honey Buzzards...


And a Barn Swallow too...


And below: Black Bazas, a flock of 60
When there are no migrants, we watch the locals - the Brahminy Kites courting, the Sea-eagle sitting on her nest, the male Sea-eagle shooing away his previous off-spring in a spectacular display of talon gripping flight, and the mynas in their bonding flights over the sea every morning in flocks that flow like water.

I'm surprised you don't have, or have access to a better camera for something like this. After all you do this every year. Doesn't your hubby have a suitable camera? Still lovely photos though. Must be so thrilling to see all these birds.
