the 2nd and 3rd pics are stunning! Not making any comparisons, but they are very Jed-kinda-pictures. Maybe cos they were taken at the same location.

Actually, we're not really at the same place. Nice shots Erwin, particularly like the third one, many many :thumbsup:

I've been doing a bit (like, everyday for the last three days). Seems to be a lot more crowded down your way, but I'm also managing to get some good stuff. Am currently on the mobile phone, so I'll get posting when I manage to find a connection point somewhere else.

Oh and BTW, those birds in flight look quite sharp... for an F70. :devil: (thread from some time back, if it makes no sense, ignore it)

Hi Jed, Tweek

Thanks. wahhh, my photographs are 'Jed-like' :) I'm in Singapore on 56.6 dialup so i'm on like only an hour a day unlike unlimited hi-speed access in uk so can't post often.

Anyway, I divided Part 1 and Part 2 by the lens I used. Most people would be even more surprised by the very ordinary lens used for Part 1 (i.e. these pictures) : a 75-300 f4.5-5.6 ;)

Very impressive with the slower 75-300 lens, which focuses notoriously slowly. Slower than the 80-200/2.8 for example. And the F70 too, which focuses slower than an F90x.

Seriously though, which WWT is this, particularly the third shot? I am keen to do Farne, possibly even your Welsh island, see how it goes... I'm on a 28.8 mobile phone, don't whinge... ;)

2 & 3 are WWT Martin Mere, 1 & 4 are WWT Caeverlock, and 5 is WWT Welney. Since its a long journey, you might want to call to see what birds are there before going....
