Two from the hide

Below are two young birds seen from Stithians hide on Sunday. A family party of six Jays were feeding round the bird table at the Cut-off hide. A young Blackbird joined them and posed long enough for me to take a composed shot. I used the 300mm lens with 1.4x Teleconverter, handheld against the hide upright post. Aperture was set to almost wide open at F/5.6 so the depth of field was quite critical. It had the desired effect though of dropping everything behind the Blackbird out of focus.
