Oh thanks alot for all your great comments.
ammadoux- I used the 70-200f4 IS lens with the 1.4 converter attached. We saw the Buzzard in a field right by the road, there was a verge of grasses so maybe that helped. He just didn't seem bothered by us although I didn't try to get out of the car.
Just thought I would update you re my 7D. I returned it to the suppliers and they sent me out another one. The difference is fantastic. I have been trying it out over the past couple of weeks and am very pleased with it. I knew the original one was faulty and am so pleased I returned it.
Hi there 7D users,
I recently purchased the 7D and after a spending a few days using intensively found that I could not get images without really bad noise even at iso 400 the noise was really bad. I did lots of comparison shots with my 20D and the images on the 20D had less noise...
Just like to plug a new photo sharing group started on the Flickr website. It is called isle of wight birds. The group is for anyone living on the island to post their images of wild birds photographed on the island. At the moment we are all enjoying taking amazing pictures of barn owls...
On a recent visit to the RSPB island of Ramsey we were priveleged to be on the island with only 3 other people and were lucky to be able to get close to this beautiful bird which was perched on the cliff edge. The weather was superb and I recommend the island to anyone who is in the area.
