Eurasian Curlew taken at Wells on Sea, Norfolk in England.....shortly before dogwalker+ big stick appeared and launced the timber toward the wading birds.

Nice. It's strange how flocks of waders attract dogs with sticks etc. What was the shutter speed etc ?

Thanks. Most of the birds were a long way off and didn't fly away, the Sanderling and a lone Redshank didn't like the sight of a large dog splashing towards them!
Taken from in front of the beach huts...if you know the location. Got Brent, White-Fronted and Pink-Footed geese a bit later at Holkham. Saw Snow Bunting and Shorelark but too many people around to get any shots.

You must have more light in England. I never seem to get below ISO 200....

It was a sunny day, Graham. This shot was at about 35x on the zoom e.p. Usually get at least 1/60 on most days with the zoom at 20x.
Hopefully getting my hands on the Zeiss 85mm soon, be interesting if that extra 5mm will make much difference?
Regards,

Sunshine ? I remember now, we had some of that about 10 days ago. Maybe I should move back to England....

Sorry, Klaus. I'll try to do better next time. Shooting moving birds at 80yards+ isn't easy and heathaze doesn't help matters.
