After quite a long break due to many commitments, I managed a great day out recently with David. This gave me a chance to test out my latest new lens, a much lighter version of a 500mm that I hope to take away to Scotland soon, as dragging the heavy 300mm f2.8 up the mountains doesn't really appeal anymore.
With no unusual birds about currently in our area we decided on a trip to Rye Harbour, where at least we would probably see a few nice things reasonably close to the hides. As it was we had only just entered the first hide when a Little Egret walked past in front only a few metres away. There were also a couple of Little Grebe swimming very close. Just what I needed to test out the lens on both camera bodies.
