I just bought myself a 100-400mm lense and headed off down the coast on a rainy morning.
Thought of taking my new "baby" out for a test as I previously spotted a Heron in a dam en route to our destination, but thought against it due to rain etc ..
As luck would have it, not only was the light perfect at the dam, the Heron stood proudly, when searching the banks a Pied KIngfisher was not more than 15 yards from me .
Frustrated, I climbed back into the car and headed away from the dam, only to encounter a Kestrel enjoying breakfast, and to cap it all, spotted 2 hawks (I am searching Google for verification) ... What a day it could have been !!!!
Going to try my luck tomorrow, hopefully luck will be on my side ...
