I prefer expose normally on shadow or even a bit of ETTR (expose on right) and still can recover most of highlights.

you mean like this?

Yes.

Still recoverable. It can be recovered further by applying software GND filter and brush tool in LR. Technically you can use fill-flash that is not a problem at 200mm. Nevertheless my point is that this look better than pulling a dark face with excessive ISO 1600-6400 eq noise/grain and distorted colors.

Similar but birds instead. I gave +2/3 EC on top of Partial metering so totally about +1 EV above 'normal' exposure under Evaluative metering.

+1 EC

+2/3 EC
