Went down to Marsh Lane again this morning getting there at just after 8.00 AM.It was sunny and till a cool breeze got up later it was quite pleasant.
I'd come down mainly to keep getting better at using the new camera/lens which I can now say after nearly a month of ownership is pretty impressive and is proving to be a good move selling the Canon DSLR camera/lens.The new kit is compact and much lighter, takes great shots when you get everything right, has great reach (double that of my old 400mm lens) and a very good video.
Most of the shots I take now I could not get anywhere near as close with the old set up.

Haven't had much opportunity to try for some shots of smaller birds as my back garden feeding station is going through a bad patch (no visitors).A brief visit by a Nuthatch on the Oak feeders gave me a chance.
Had a go at some flight shots which turned out OK but the subjects were easy.
The star attraction was on site again this time perching at a new spot for me a bush that somehow has grown on one of the Tern floats.Pleased with these pics as it was easily 70 m distant from the Oak hide.
Some closer shots with the lens zoomed up to the equivalent of 600mm
