It’s a year since I first stepped out into the world of birds with a big Sigma lens (150-600m). First day out snapped a kingfisher that had been hanging around the Cottenham Lode . I’ve snapped 130 different bird species since, including herons, raptors, cuckoos, summer migrants, warblers, waders, seabirds, and even the occasional owl.
Scrollable gallery of choice snaps here: https://imagingstorm.co.uk/british-birds although you may notice I got ever so slightly better with tweaking my settings as the months went by. Earliest shots are at the bottom of the long table.
