The Car Park Siskin

By jonah794  
Hi everyone

I had an osprey, but deleted it as the screen didn't do it justice. So instead I'm giving you all a relieving break of the ospreys, and am giving you a little siskin, one of my favourite scottish birds.

Cheryl and I stood in the heavy rain in a car park near Loch an Eilean, which was a hub for these little birds. They let us go very close, and I had Cheryl's 300mm again (thanks Cheryl Smile)

Anyway... I hope you like this one, thanks for the tips on yesterdays

Jonah

Nice one.

I went back on Thursday but it wasn't Ian on the gate and the other chap had not filled the feeders Sad

Apparently after telling us about cresties in Colyumbridge there were in fact some just a couple of hundred yards away at one of the houses on the right hand path! Doh!

A quality lens, which can be yours for just 2.8k Grin

No, cos it's not for sale Grin

A nice 200-400 at Ffordes though if you're interested.

Sorry Jonah, highjacking your image for futile negotiations Grin Grin Grin

That is the lens I dream about! A zoom, f4 throughout, and VR! What more could you want - now I just need some more cash! I'm just hoping that the price of the old version will drop now that the version with VRII has come out.
