  • Black-tailed Godwit

    Generally known in birding circles as a "Blackwit", these large waders come to our shores and inland waters in large numbers in late Summer and Autumn. this one was at Frampton Marsh RSPB Reserve on the North shore of the Wash. This was at around twenty metres so necessitated the use of the Canon EF 400mm with Kenko 1.4x on the E-M5, manual focus:





    Taken with the same lens on a Canon 7D:

    Well done. Were you in a hide? I find birds in estuaries and on the sea shore very nervous so you have to be a good distance from them and well camouflaged. I really like these shots especially no 2.

        Very nice shots David.

        Nice to see this one still has a little bit of breeding plumage.

        Regards.
