    WARBLER ID please.

    It certainly did convince many...the recorders for Warks & Worcs photographed and registered it. A fantastic find. Unfortunately when it comes to it my knowledge falls very short of some of our local experts. I have identified a few semi rarities myself like Redpoll Icelandica & what I thought...

    Nikon D500 what mode do you advise for bird photography?

    By the way Andy, are you on Twitter? I post most of my 'decent ??' stuff there......#IanByrnes2

    Nikon D500 what mode do you advise for bird photography?

    Hello Andy I set it at 7.1 and because the Teleconverter takes the 'f' stop down I allow the camera & lens to automatically sort it - which it does. Believe me I'm no expert with cameras but the settings recommended have worked beautifully. As I say though, I use the exposure compensation...

    Nikon D500 what mode do you advise for bird photography?

    I read many expert articles from bird photographers & watched many videos on the same. I have a D500, Sigma 150-600 Contemporary & use a Sigma 1.4 TC which stays on. The following article did it all for me & now I'm able to get some pretty good results from close up, to BIF & long distance...

    Very appealing Don. There's such great opportunities at the moment to get those fledglings.

    Hi Andy What did you buy in the end? Like you I didn't want to spend a fortune so bought a used D500 with low count @ £950 & a new Sigma Contemporary 150-600 & 1.4 TC on offer at Amazon for £875 for the 2 - a bargain. That gave me the equivalent of 1260mm. I didn't use the TC at first because I...
