Both with Nikon D50 and Sigma 70-300 APO DG Macro

This is a pleasant lake near my home. This is the only access point to the lake, a bird hide.

First - Greenfinch

Shaun,
I really like the composition and framing you achieved in both your shots but the lighting is bad. If you were using backlight as an effect in your photo's then please ignore the rest.
With only one access point on the lake you'd achieve better results by shooting later in the day or morning when the sun highlights the side facing you. If this isn't possible then a fill flash could help by illuminating the shadowed area without overexposing the background. Using a flash would have helped the Green Finch shot but probably not the Heron as it does have a distance limit. A Flash extender may help in this case by extending the flash out further. I hope this helps as I do like your shots and Hope to see more posts from you!

-Kent
