Indeed. I see the fine image of a greater spotted woodpecker is taken with Oly 70-300. Surprised you're selling it. I guess it's more portable and of course better maximum focal length than 50-200, though maybe not as good IQ and not as wide aperture.

It just doesn't have the quality of the 50-200. I'd not let that one go and won't let the 70-300 go unless someone meets the asking price. I'd rather keep it and use now and again than let it go for a steal.

Goosander and Mallards @80 yard range

Fem Goosander was trying to be friendly, but the male Mallard was not interested..............

Ron, lovely bird.

By coincidence that is the best of what I saw today as well. But as mine was shot with the C... so it is only on Flickr . But it was in lovely condition too.

And there was lots of mole action too. But no redpolls, yellowhammers, siskins. Just a few Bullfinches and Redwings. A poor year so far.

Lovely Heron shots on your Flickr page Peter. Your bird was considerably more energetic than mine.

Digging through my photos I came across these shots from last June of a Goldfinch on one of the feeders.





Edit: E-M1 mk1 with 50-200SWD lens and OI Share on iPad.

Nice picture, I see loads of these locally. The black and white detail lines on the flanks are lovely in a picture. But it is the whistle that I hear first. Brings a smile...
