Alpine Accentor

When on holiday in the Pyrenees near Gavarnie we always look for Alpine Accentors. In the vast spaces of the mountains they can be difficult to find but one day whilst sitting in our car at about 7000 ft and eating our lunch my wife spotted one under the front of our car. It was picking about having it’s lunch.

Problem, how do I get the camera out of the car boot and creep round to get a good shot without scaring it away. No problem, with a bit of stealth I managed to line up a few good shots. The bird apparently was not that bothered, it was more concerned with seeing what the tourists had left for it.
