Sort-of-wild urban mallard, but by golly he's a handsome one.

Technique I have also heard off with locked off long lenses is to place a 1-2 KG bean bad on top of the lens to help damp the vibrations. Not tried this myself.

Interesting, although I am afraid this might cause some drift. I have been holding the lens from the bottom, which is similar. I will buy a bag of beans and see what it does for me.

A Reed Warbler I think (please correct me if I'm wrong). They're always deep in the reeds but they're not actually very shy. I was very close to him here.

Had to look again - you so nailed the focus - spot on, either side by a bit and the reeds would have cought the focus.

Sometimes there are days when you get the shot(s) you missed many days, months or years before.
