This is 1 of 3 SEO's I have seen not far from me (Uphill, SW England), there have been 6 seen all at once.

Unfortunately the weather has been atrocious for weeks, grey sky and rain everyday. As soon as there is a break in the weather, that is my opportunity to go and see them. It was just luck I managed to get a few half decent shots.....

Great shots Paul, colour me green. Is this in the fields between the boat yard and the beach? I noticed on one of the birding blogs that they've been seen there quite frequently so I went on Sunday for a look see, not really knowing where to go, just guessing really, and it was dark and rainy and I didn't see squat!

Hi Sid,

I was there Sunday Morning (26th between 09:30-11:00). There was 1, I managed to get this shot. They are there almost every evening and some mornings, Between 1 and 6 of them. I have only once seen 4 there. I see them almost every year about this time. They are in the field next to the golf course. Walk past the boat yard and enter the field on the right. You can't miss them. The path you take is not the one from the car park. Take the path from the road next to the sleuth gates.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

It did track ok. Does it have similar settings to the 7Dii? That's a tricolored heron, BTW. Nice shot.

Must've just missed you, I was there 8 ish till 9.30 ish and I was in the right area sort of. Now you've given me more of a clue I'll have another bash when I can. I'm about an hour away on a good traffic day. Cheers

Thanks Ed and you knew I didn't know what kind of Heron.
The tracking of the a99ii is equal to or better than the 1DXii for anything panning or angular. It should be better, 399 AF points on the sensor, 79 above the mirror that match up with
the ones on the sensor...BUT I haven't shot anything coming straight, absolutely straight at me, and reports say the 1DXii is still better at that...and it should be ;) at twice the price. But 42mp at 12fps and a DR that even the king Canon can't touch is something. If you go into crop mode (only 18mp) you get 250 raw before the buffer fills. They say it is the same sensor in the a7rii but I think it has been tweeked a bit for the a99ii. Look at this image via the a7Rii, not embedding since nothing to do with birds, but this would have taken 2 hours of imaging with a Canon--this was with 2.5 min's total of exposures with the a7Rii. There is simply no other sensor that exists that can do this in this form factor-
https://www.flickr.com .../album-72157640003022543/ (external link)
And to think that kind of DR at 12 fps and huge cropability....now you know why I'm smitten with the a99ii.
Shame about Sony long glass though, just a shame.
Forgot to mention, that astro image was processed from jpgs. I'd forgotten and did the shoot in uncompressed raw. For the a7Rii or a9ii uncompress yields 80mp images and Deep Sky Stacker chocked on them! Luckily I shot jpgs too.
