Nice one Mo. Good shot!
Know what you mean about the lens. I was using the similar 100-300 and felt the same but have just got a 70-200 f/4L and 1.4x extender which are superb. Just got to find some time to watch the birdies now! Mind you, Angelamary has 'inherited' my old lens and has just taken some cracking bird pics which she will post soon! Ho hum....
