I met up with Hugh and Tricia. I had been aiming to meet with Hugh to try his 80-400vr lens. I've been a bit disappointed with some of my distance photos and wanted to see if VR would make a difference.
The first photo is just to show a Moorhen with a yellow beak. It isn't one I'd publish normally.
Right little poser!!
I do like this Moorhen sequence.
So what do I think? I still found some of this distance shots disappointing BUT I got more keepers than normal and I think that generally this batch is a bit better than normal.
I would appreciate your opinions. I'm not my own best critic I always think everyone elses photos are better than mine.
Thanks to both for a good mornings birding. Highlights? Siskin, Stonechat and Pintail i guess. There were loads of Ducks and Gulls. We had 4 Little Grebes together at one time and there were a lot of Great Crested's as well.
