6D, Birding started early this year
Jan 22, 2014

We got invaded by Redpolls, so I had to go and sit in the car with a cup of coffee and the camera this weekend. The reason for the invasion is that it suddenly went cold, and they all fled down here from the North, they’ve had -40 up there. We finally got better weather too here in Southern Sweden, -2 to -10 , fairly sunny and we have a decent cover of snow, about 4cm.

Marsh tit

Redpoll or possibly Arctic Redpoll, I'm not good enough to be sure. Any suggestions are welcome.




Common Treecreeper    (this one is a swine to get a decent picture of,  they’re always in the shadows, I never got one with my old 40D)

All photos with 6D, Ef400/5.6, Tamron 1.4 extender and 35mm extension tubes. I used autofocus, which works slowly and perhaps not as accurate as it should be, but it's quicker than manual focus and I was more interested in getting the shots. I'm getting an LCDVF , so next time I'll try it with that and manual focus. It's always poor light here in January, so ISO ranges from 1250 when the sun came out, to 12800 for the treecreeper.

Hope you like them
