Unfortunately, on many of the pictures there was visible noise, so I then went down to ISO 500 for a few shots:

I didn't have much luck, though, as most of my shots were either slightly OOF, or very OOF:

It was slightly better on Sunday. I was still shooting at ISO 500, but shutter-priority (1/400). On that day, that sometimes meant wide open, sometimes even underexposed.

Fortunately, some geese came to my rescue--the shots were still tough, but out of nowhere, a bunch of large birds appeared:

Soon thereafter, they started leaving again. Unfortunately, I was forced to take this shot wide open, and the lack of DoF leaves only one goose in focus...
