This is a shot taken at 'Stover Country Park' a couple of days ago. I must have waited around 3/4 hours waiting for him to perch himself in the tree nearby as this was the reason for waiting so long, and although he did perch beautifully, the tree was in almost darkness from the surrounding foliage. This Country Park has lost it's 'Bird Hide' due to some kind persons burning it down (how thoughtful) but now has an 'Aerial viewing platform' which puts you almost to the top of trees some 50-60 feet tall and they have 'feeders' dangling from the branches which are fastened by a series of pulleys at ground level. The only problem with this is that when the birds fly on to feed, the feeder goes round and round one way, stops and then reverses the opposite way.(what a joy). It's a case of getting them at the right moment on the merry go round and also in the spot where the sunlight peeps through. I have also uploaded the original so that you can see the shot in it's entirety. Sorry if this write up is a bit lengthy, but thought it would help any other members who decide to make a visit.
Many thanks to you all for your votes and comments on my 'Blue Tit fledgling', as ever I am most grateful for your kind support.
Regards.
Geoff.

This is a smashing shot Geoff, with the lighting really making it stand out. I'm especially intrigued to know what teleconverter you are using, since I use that same lens for bird shots. Looks like you are getting sharp results, but is the autofocus still usable?

Friend of ours get GSWP on their feeders and asked me to take some shots but they hang on a chain and the WP hit it so hard coming in that it still swings when he's long gone - needless to say about 100 shots later I had to give up.
