Guessing we'll be quite some distance from any birdlife, so bring my longest lens (FT 50-200 + EC-20) as well as binoculars. Still not much reach for "sitting in the hide" photography. Tripod too as birds in flight are not quite my skillset. I'm not a digiscoper and don't have a scope at all.

Image Stabilistion off for tripod. Any other hints for kit or camera setup to prepare in advance?

Looking forward to it anyway.

P.S. Any reason why this thread is in General Photography and not Events? It took me a while to find it.
It may be worth while bringing a lens like the 14-54 or 12-40, the wildlife may be closer than you think..
