A nice selection, Ian. I think your sandpiper is a solitary, however, and not a spotted.

Yes, thanks Al, I was just corrected by a member of the NSBS.

"End of summer activity on the river"

Yeah, but when Winter does get here, it will open up a whole 'nother bunch of things to shoot! :-D

Very nice job on all of this, Ian, the action of the Kingfisher with the water droplets is very nice, but they all are, I really couldn't pick a favorite here!

Thanks very much John & Ned. Ned, the 500 II + 2x III is my most usual combo. Love it, they play well together.

Super set Ian, hard to believe summer's about over. I'm envious of your 1DX and 500II, that's a dream combo especially for action. The variety of birds you see there ain't too shabby either.
