What a Bird!!

 Early start this morning to track down the Squacco Heron near Halsey farm.

Having only just got my new Canon R7 mirrorless camera  this was the first opportunity to try it out together with a Canon 800mm F8 lens. My reservations for a fixed aperture lens were quickly dispelled and together with an the amazing eye focus facility and incredible stabilisation enabling it to be hand held has already made it the ideal bird photography combination for me, where the weight of a 500mm f4 lens has become increasing problem with age!

Here are a sample selection from this morning....

That'll do nicely for a first outing!!
