All this was critical as this was either HK's second Booted or third Sykes's Warbler and images are essential to inform the identification so this was an important test for the RX10iii as a birding camera.

Very impressive performance!
Getting good focus beyond some interfering vegetation is a weakness in amateur cameras such as I use. Your skill with the Sony's flexibility has eliminated that.
Now if only they could make it smaller....
