I have to say that I feel that the way so called " Bird photography " is going is appalling. I see this every day now in the forest where I live . - tape recorders to lure stuff in, people photographing birds with nesting material, ( the worst time for a desertion ) schedule one species being done when the the photographers don't even know what a schedule 1 is ! - birds with food in the mouth obviously trying to get back to a nest. Its all gone mad.
A Pied Fly nests in box 94 for example, and is surrounded every day by the cream camo covered lens brigade.
What the hell is it all about. ??? Beats me.
Take the Hawfinch fiasco at Cannock recently and you might know what I am getting at
