          Excellent shots of a great bird Phill. I assume they were taken with the 40-150 f2.8 and MC-20?

            Thanks everyone. Yes Ron 40-150 and MC-20, I haven't taken it off the lens since I got it. This was the first time I'd really tried it out with flying birds at a distance. It seemed to work pretty well, I suspect most of the many misses were down to me just not being fast enough.

                Anyone able to confirm an id on these please?

                  Gooses come from Canada

                  The little waders are a bit more tricky, could be Turnstone, but unsure of the scale......

                    It was the little jobbies I were unsure about, and I'd decided they were turnstones, just needed a confirmation.

                    Gooses I was OK identifying them as North American colonial types!

                      The obvious golden colour of their backs should tell you exactly what they are.

                        Great shots, but slightly disconcerting that the geese are shown flying in the opposite direction!

                            Bar-headed goose(!) among a flock of roosting Graylag geese. Not the best of shots, taken from quite some distance. Still, my first sighting ever of this central Asian species.

                              I'm surprised that there aren't more around. There was escaped birds breeding in the U.K. in the 1980s.
                              It's the image that's important, not the tools used to make it.

                                We had two on the Thames a few years ago but they've long since gone.
