Help! Pass constructive criticism by all means, but can anyone tell me what this is. My friend, who is a keen birder, says its a Ruffe in winter coat. My wife and I say he is wrong. We think it's a Sanderling or Knot, possibly juvenile in winter coat.
Original is rather sharper, as I was rather pleased. Shot near Cleethorpes on Thorpe Marsh. 50/500 at 500mm (800) resting on part open car window. Bird 6 metres away. Old 20D attached - I leave it on this lens for rapid use. Never sell old bodies, not worth it. ISO800, 1/160 @ f9 on aperture priority. Had to compress a lot as, even at 600 pixels the file from the old 20D at ISO800 was quite large.
