Re: Another Satin Bowerbird (in privet).

What a great looking bird Ross. Lovely shots in a great setting. I like the way its eyes match the privet berries.

Re: Going Nowhere...........

That is a lovely, tranquil scene Mark. Despite being completely the opposite side of Britain, it has a remarkably similar feel to Wells harbour near me.

Re: Spotted Flycatchers with 300+MC-20

Yes, very nice indeed Andrew. From the second photo you appear to live in a castle with a portcullis. That's a surprise. :)

Re: New MC 20 announced.

That is very impressive Andrew. Have you taken any at full aperture for comparison? A 'quick grab shot' of a Spotted Flycatcher - you know how to rub it in. :)

These are the settings which I used. They might not be the best choice but they are what I have arrived at presently.

C-AF (not tracking); Silent Shutter, Sequential Low 10fps; C-AF Centre...

Re: Zuiko 300mm PRO glitch

I frequently have a similar problem to yours Mark. I see a bird and place the AF target over it but when I half press the shutter button all I see in the view finder is a smudge instead of the bird....

Terrific, detailed shots with great colours Andrew. I love the Wren. Were they taken with or without the MC-14?

Re: Pulled trigger on cheap Pen F. Wish me luck...

That does look like a bit of a bargain. The remote shutter release cable suggests that the camera might have spent a fair amount of its life on top of a tripod.

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

Hi Phill. The first two egrets are indeed Little Egrets but the third one looks like a Cattle Egret to me (a nice find.) The 'tern' is a Black-headed Gull.

Re: Widows and pipes

That's a strong, geometric image Alf. I like it. From the thread title I was expecting it to be something to do with Scottish Widows. Maybe that sultry lady in a black, hooded cape. :)
