SLR+ long lens v Bridge camera


I have an A65 and my longest lens is a Minolta 100-300 or a manual focus 500mm mirror lens.

I am looking at getting a longer AF lens for bird/animal pictures etc. I am on a limited budget so would be looking at something like a Sigma 150-500.

Just wondering if I would get better results with a Bridge camera with a 1000mm+ lens, a Fuji HS50 or Sony HX300 etc.

Anyone with practical experience of similar systems?
