Whinchats

Autumn migration is underway now and a few migrant birds have been turning up locally. I missed out on the Pied Flycatchers a few days ago, as I was otherwise engaged, but today I managed to find three Whinchats. Most of the views were rather distant, as shown in the last two photos, but one bird allowed me to get quite close.

E-M1 II, 300mm f4 and MC-14.

Re: Whinchats

A real beauty Ron, and lovely to see the rusty nail alongside it in picture 1. it is a lovely subject for painting. I wish i'd have seen it with you. That lens suits your work so well.

Thanks Peter. They were perching on the old net drying posts in north Lowestoft, which are disintegrating fast, so there are plenty of old rusty nails. I have a feeling that they won't be there for many more years and will probably be replaced by yet more holiday caravans. Bad news for the birds.

The 300mm does a great job and I really like using it, although I do notice the weight when I have been carrying it slung over my shoulder for a couple of hours. It's worth the discomfort though.

Hi Ron

love the extra details, As a painting it could be really nice if a few extras were added in. But i have too many paintings to start already

If Olympus had got that lens out sooner and/or there hadn't been so many issues with the 100-400 I probably wouldn't be running two systems. But c'est la vie. And my present long birding kit just works a treat so no complaints. Id certainly like one eventually.
