Minsmere today.

Went to Minsmere today with my new Canon 800mm F5.6 to give it a test run. Performed really well but the birds didn't play their part all that well. Managed to get some snow bunting shots but there were a lot of spotting scopes behind me so i could not get too close for fear of upsetting the birdwatchers.

Back in the game

Well it has been a funny year especially as i sold my 600mm F4 to Sparky and decided to take up street photography. What a mistake that was and now the Leica M9 and lens is sold and i sit here tonight the proud owner of a new Canon 800mm F5.6. She is a beast and i hope to be taking her out to Mins or Shingle street on Monday weather permitting for a test drive. It will also be nice to meet some old friends from my bird photography days. 
Great to be back!!!!
