Monday 22nd June - a day out with a friend. In view of the restrictions, we met in the car park at WWT Welney, after pre-booking, as required. They are only allowing 30 or so pre-booked visitors per day so there was no problem with social distancing. Unfortunately, the birds were social distancing too,  the only ones that were close enough to photograph were the House Martins and Swallows that were nesting around or in the observatory.

These were a test for the low light abilitiy of the 1DX MK2.

It was hot and sunny so flight shots were marred by heat haze. These are the best but nothing to be proud of.

With nothing really worth going out for, but still with an itchy trigger finger, I concentrated on my garden feeders for a couple of hours a couple of days ago.

Not bad as I was sitting in our sun lounge, drinking a beer and hand-holding the 500 lens. Wish bird photography was always this comfortable!!!
