I have another photo but not sure how to post it after starting the original thread.

Leucistic Crow (UK)

Saw one of these last year and I managed to take some snaps. Not the best quality as they are long distance and I wasn't out to take photos so used what I had with me.

Can someone please confirm...

I think magpie is the most likely candidate.
Buzzards fly over but I have never seen one land near the house.
When I was a lad hardly ever saw a magpie. Now lots around.

Thanks for the responses.
I've lived in this area all my life and never seen it before. But the climate is changing.

I doubt if it's a mammal. More likely a corvid or buzzard. Lots of both locally....

Frog spawn under the tree in October. (UK)

For several years in the spring I have found lumps of frog spawn on the drive, under an oak tree. I came to the conclusion a bird was catching frogs in the pond at the rear and perching in the tree...

Silent shutter would be useful to me. Often sat in the hide and the only one with a DSLR. I start to shoot and the D500 shutter sounds pretty loud.

Thanks for the review Marc.
I need to plan to keep my D500.
Now the challenge for me is how to afford both the Z7 and the 200 5.6PF.

I have both a D500 and an X-T2. The low light noise is the D500 is often an extra challenge here in the gloomy UK.

The AF of the T3 must be a lot better than the T2 for some to compare to the D500.

Have Nikon actually announced there will be a 600 5.6PF, or is this just an assumption taking account they have a patent?

Z7's are in short supply her in the UK (especially the full kit).
I'm not convinced that wildlife shooting is one of its strengths. For travel it looks ideal. Also, using those old Ai-s lenses will...

This field opposite Fell End wasn't much use for anything and it is good he has used some of his wealth to create a reserve.

I can't see how these mirrorless offerings are going to help bird Photography that much.
IBIS is not as effective on the long lenses. The 500PF is more significant for us.

I doubt it. The row of cottages where I grew up had a similar number and we had a good mixture of visitors to my Mother's feeders.
I suppose the biggest risk is they gobble up all the food.

Week days best for me.
But nowadays every day seems to be busy at Leighton Moss.
