Nov 302015

My wife and I spent the day in London on Saturday 28th November, visiting St.Paul’s Cathedral amongst other things. I woke up on Sunday morning to a real grey November day, what was I going to do? Local Patch, not done it for a while and at least I might get a chance of photographing a few common birds, I had to salvage something out of the day. I spent an hour looking over Staunton Harold Reservoir and typically very little. A drake Goldeneye, 10 Wigeon, a couple of Teal and a flyover Yellow-legged Gull were the highlights. So I spent the next hour photographing a few common species, visiting one of the feeders. The light was really difficult, so I was very pleased with the following results. Had to “Bang-Up” the ISO in order to get some decent speed. Canon EOS1D MkIV & 400 5’6 with 1.4 extender.
