Industrial Wildlife

I know it is an odd title for a blog post about nature and wildlife. However it is often the case, that animals and birds move in to areas with lots of industry.

Industrial areas are often only busy during normal working hours, and the rest of the time they are quiet areas with both food and shelter for wildlife.

It is normally a lot easier to get close to wildlife in an industrial area. The birds and animals are used to human activity. A car is especially good “camouflage” if you are trying to get closer to the wildlife. Just don’t open any doors or get out of the vehicle to get the photo.

The above photo is taken in the local industrial area. The buzzards use lamp posts as viewing points for rodents, road kills etc. The shot is taken from my car with a 400mm lens on 1,6x camera body.
