Cold weather brings winter thrushes
The colder weather this weekend has pushed more thrushes into the county. With strong south-easterlies blowing all weekend, Fieldfare and Redwing are appearing everywhere. I took the Fieldfare shots yesterday and the Redwing shots this morning walking to work through the local park. I used the 300mm F/2.8 with 1.4x TC, handheld. It felt strange not having to use a tripod! The end result though is many more shots appearing out of focus. I was delighted with the images below though and have been waiting for ages to get a chaqnce to photo these stunning birds. Focal length: 420mm. Aperture: F/4.5 WB Cloudy. ISO 640. Exp 0.0.
