From the Somerset levels

A large group of watchers had spent most of the day watching this feed, and when we came by we asked what they were looking at, and no sooner had they all gone, then the bird sprung into action by bathing and flying around

Still haven't a clue how rare they are

All of the pictures are very sharp and well composed. I do have a question however. Why do they all seem to have a little haze? I know you used a 600mm lens with an extender and I'm curious if it was the atmosphere, lighting, or the lens itself? I don't think there is ISO noise but it makes we wonder. Very impressive all the same.

What a terrific set of images of this rare migrant, v2 and v7 being my particular favourites. There were two of these on South Lake at Slimbridge for around a week a month or so ago, sadly they did not show their face when I visited

In response to Shotfromacanon, these were taken from a significant distance away, I would say about 300 yards, at the end of a sunny day, and I have seen stringy background bokeh effects like this before

It seems to happen with heat haze and both the bokeh and image can become quite interesting in its own right at longer distances, so I suspect haze is probably what you are seeing here

A tog next to me with a Nikon 600mm and 1.4tc could get any useful images, simply because 840mm is not 1200mm
