African Ibis in flight against the Milnerton Golf Course
After some dismal weather conditions the last two weeks or so I faced the northeaster this morning to see how the birds are doing.

Birds in flight from top to bottom:
  • African Ibis
  • Cape canary
  • Common starling
  • African darter
  • Grey heron
  • Cape wagtail
  • Kelp / Cape Gull

Updated Woodbridge Island Photography Index
This mornings outing also provided an opportunity to ass two new species (Cape canary / Kelp gull) to my own Woodbridge Island / Table Bay Nature Reserve Bird species Index. View Bird Species Index

Lightroom Post-Processing
All images processed in Lightroom Classic 9. Converted from RAW to JPG. Lens profile correction. Minor colour correction. Sharpness and noise reduction applied. Due to the low light / higher ISO images I spent more time with post-processing that I would in good light.

Low flying Pied Kingfisher crashing into the Diep River

As a birds in flight photographer I;m always on the lookout for something different, something unique to add into an ever growing gallery of in-flight images. The "Crashing Pied Kingfisher" was one of those unique opportunities that I get from time to time down here at Woodbridge Island.

This series of 5 images that I captures of a low flying pied kingfisher was not that different from their normal low flying style, or so I thought at the time of the captures. It was only when back in the studio that I saw that the pied kingfisher was flying really low and ended up crashing in the water. I only saw the detail in Lightroom and  was really amazed seeing the crashing towards the end of the sequence.

Credit goes to the professional responsiveness and Autofocus tracking of the Canon EOS 7D Mark II paired with my trusted EF 400mm f/5.6L USM lens shooting at 10 frames per second. Generally I do not use images this far out from me, but the uniqueness of this unlikely event made me keep the images.

 The images was originally published on my Woodbridge Island Photography website in 2016 and with the migration to the Vernon Chalmers Photography website somehow never added them back online.

Rugby world Cup final 2019 Japan: England vs South Africa
It was only after South Africa won the Rugby World Cup 2019 in Japan against England that I decided it was time to bring this 'Crashing Pied Kingfisher' series back and I published the images on my Vernon Chalmers Photography Facebook Page and the BirdLife South Africa Facebook Group under the heading of ''This is unlikely to happen...' Eddie Jones thought so as well earlier this morning.

Eddie Jones is the current England ruby team head coach who lost 12-32 against South Africa's Sprinkboks on 2 November 2019 at the International Stadium Yokohama in Yokohama, Japan. 2019 Rugby World Cup Final Japan

    Various Birds in Flight at Woodbridge Island

    Various Birds in Flight Hike  - Woodbridge Island, Cape Town
    Great White Pelican - Table Bay Nature Reserve
    After the recent rain and wind from the last couple of days I ventured out to re-connect with my Woodbridge Island Birds in Flight shooting environment.

    I went for a short hike towards the Table Bay Nature Reserve and although a bit windy (and mid-morning) I encountered quite a few birds along the way.

    Great White Pelican
    It was also quite significant to see the Great White pelican on the edge of the small Island in the Table Bay Reserve - four images towards the bottom of the page.

    All birds in Flight photos by Vernon Chalmers with Canon EOS 7D Mark II / EF 400mm f/5.6L USM Lens ISO 320 - 800 / f/5.6 1/5000's, AI Servo (Handheld). 10 fps High-Speed continuous shooting mode.
