Fairburn Ings 19-09-2012

                Thank you Paul no problem this time 3 minutes
I wish I could say this was a local bird, sadly not.   I have just returned from a short break  in Norfolk where this bird was hunting in the field adjacent where we were staying.
 The shot was taken at dusk, the bird hard to detect with the naked eye in the poor light. With a 500mm lens  + 1.4 TC,  camera settings of   1/50th sec, aperture f5.6 iso 1600 I was amazed to get any kind of a presentable  image.

King Fisher & Chiff-Chaff.

The Chiff-chaff was taken at 8-30 this morning in heavy rain.the Kingfisher app: 1hr Later.
