The blog’s been a bit quiet of late, as I’ve been walking too far to carry my SLR. Today I tried out a new camera, which is small enough to carry the 28 miles I covered today, but has a long enough lens to make a decent effort at birds. The result was OK, if not dazzling. The light for the Snipe (which never perform like that when I have an SLR with me) was pretty poor, so there’s a fair bit of noise, but the sun had come out for the, fairly distant, Nuthatch. It will do for a record shot, should I ever find a rare bird.
