Considering hiring a lens

I had a day out to the London Wetlands Centre yesterday, which is rather an excellent place for photography. However, whilst I managed to get good photographs of the captive ducks with my E-M1 and 50-200 f/2.8-3.5 and 1.4x teleconverter:

and one or two lucky strikes with a tern and some herons:

many of the birds were so distant as to be a little small even at 283mm:

I was thinking of going back some time and hiring one of the very large Olympus Four Thirds lenses, either the 300mm f/2.8 or the 90-250 f/2.8 with the 2x teleconverter.

Has anyone had experience doing this and have any useful tips?
