Managed to spend a few hours at the nature reserve yesterday. Lots of birds about but not much showing.

Even the kingfisher only put in a brief appearance on the near pole.

Have lots of nasty bites from the few hours spent there, so not happy, two even bit through my jeans! They are nicely sore and swollen (the bites that is not the jeans Wink), so plenty of anti-histamines required just to function.

Anyway have a few jobs to do, so will check back later.

gosh just looking at this KF shot and notice you have the D300 Nikon + plus the 1.4 convertor, may I ask is this the Nikon lens and the Nikon TC giving you this splendid shot, I have done fairly well using a sigma 500 prime lens NO convertor but as with all of us I want more as in closer shots, filling the frame.
