On Sunday I returned to Troup Head, with a bit more experience of shooting birds in flight and with a new lens hoping to capture these amazing birds in their natural habitat. Here are some shots I would like to share with you :)

Excellent set! Are you taking these from a cliff top or high up?

Thanks, they are taken from a cliff top overlook their homes. Place was alot busier than when I last went up in May, so many Gannets could easily spent 4 or 5 hours there.

These images have reinforced that your new lens and trip were all worthwhile. Well done.
Thanks, I'm really liking the focal length, personally I think its just right for taking bifs. Also leaves plenty room for cropping in too if needed.
