I dont think that f16 would have helped unless you have AutoISO enabled as well.

I run in Manual mode, setting shutter and fstop for the subject and my requirements...letting the iso drift.

A first for me today was this Wryneck, not easy to get a shot of.

I found it with my bins then looked through the camera, even though I knew where it was it took some finding with the camera. It’s camo is amazing.

I saw one in Alsace hopping up between the grape vines some years ago. I had totally missed it and it didn’t seem bothered about me. Unfortunately I was shooting infra red wide angle and not equipped for bird photography back then.

We had a Hoopoe in the recreational garden across the road from us, yesterday (according to Norfolk Birdline).

I hung my iPad out of the window and played the distinctive Hoopoe call off my bird song app for ages to no avail. Of course one doesn’t know exactly what the recording was ‘saying’. It could have told it to b*gger off......it seems to have done that anyway. 😂

The fact that it didn’t show that is probably what it was saying.🤣🤣

Still trying to get to grips with the Sony, and a zoom lens! I keep forgetting the flexibility of the 200-600 available range. 

Ordinarily it sits at 600 and I can sometimes struggle to leave sufficient surround to frame the bird forgetting I can zoom out.

This time I did the opposite!

Trying to capture a young Dunnock flitting about the tree, I managed to get this shot which later required about a 25-50% crop. 

Then I realised I had the lens set at 300mm 🤬

It’s hard breaking the habits of a life time ….in this case prime lens v zoom flexibility.

Couldn’t help feeling sorry for this scruffy Bluetit.

Going in and out of its nest hole to feed its brood has taken a toll on its appearance…

Another Dunnock foraging in the bushes…..

I don’t really know where all this bright light is coming from!  I had to get the iso down into 3 digits for a change.


Here’s another baby…..

Not sure we should be including ‘caged bird’ photos, but anyway here’s my version. 😀

That’s enough…back to weeding the garden. 😞

Excellent shots Jeff.  I must get up to Bempton again.  Haven’t been there for 30 years😳


I’ve been trying to locate a Tawny Owl thats been keeping down the rodents in our garden. We regularly hear them at night but of late the blackbirds have been pinking away down in our woodland corner during the daytime.

Not easy to find and even harder to get a clear line of sight. So not perfect photo…..but a nice ‘garden’ bird and first for us!

Crocodiles of people wandering about at Titchwell and other vantage points.
Springwatch hasn’t helped, with thousands of numpties thinking they can turn up at Snettisham and see what the BBC crew are seeing live.

I fear this won’t calm down till people lose interest with holidaying in UK and resuming jetting off to far flung places….and get back to work.

Think the owl has the right idea….close your eyes and chill.

It was really dark in this spot. This needed 12,800 iso even at 1/100th

Eric, can you post which camera you are using when you post from your two cameras!  Profligate! 
:lol:

I am trying to work out if I can see a difference between the cameras.
