Advice for best lens to get

Hi, I was wondering if anyone could help me. I'm not very technically minded when it comes to cameras but I do love photography. I'm thinking of getting a zoom lens for my Pentax K100D Super but I need to have something with a max zoom of about 500-600mm. Preferably not a fixed length either say something like 150-500mm? I do like Sigma and have a 70-300mm lens but need something bigger and better as I would like to get some really good bird photos from hides and such like. My budget isn't massive I'd say no more than 300 so I think it may be a bit naive of me to expect to get something ace with that amount of money. Can anyone recommend a good lens?
There is something about the wonder of nature, nature in its infinite variety and mystery that touches people in their very souls.

For your budget you would be looking at a second hand sigma 150-500
