Well here's wishing you all a very Merry Christmas
This photo is actually a christmas card and was taken at 6500 iso hand held under tungsten light using my 400 lens from across the room and I thought it looked OK , so now I am ready for my next encounter in the gloom !!.
The other day I visited my one time favourite winter haunt of Linton Pools alas the west pool held 2 Mallard, 3 Tufted & 3 Teal.
The East Pool had 2 Mute Swans ,70 Teal and 2 Tufted so it actually took longer to walk to each pool than bird them .Except I noticed a Buzzard sitting on the fence ,they are usually miles away but in the scope it was not to bad ,so I thought I would video it . Now they are only very short so don't start them and then go and make a cup of tea, but heh !!!! at least they are not the repeats that the TV is offering .
I think this an adult or perhaps sub/adult , most of the books I have cover flight ID
