Rare occurrance

Two pairs of rare Garganey duck flew into my patch yesterday, only the third time on record, probably all the way from tropical Africa. This attractive cousin of the teal only breeds in small numbers in the UK, probably less than 100 pairs and is usually quite secretive so it was a privilege to see them. They were mainly hunkered down almost hidden around 100 metres away so my shots are not exactly top notch but the combination of the E-M5 and Canon 400mm in MF mode gave a good account of itself. The 7D with the same lens using AF did not do so well.

The Drake:

Wow David, great capture and a superb 'tick' for your life or year bird list... well, it would be for mine

Looks like the EM5 and Canon 400mm compliment each other well.

A great shot of a fine looking duck David. I saw a pair last Sunday but could only get some poor record shots against the light.
