Re: From Panny to Nikons

Yep, I like birds with a reputation for being difficult to approach; they represent more of a challenge and often require advanced planning to gain the best shots, pretty much like our native kingfishers do over here.

Although I no longer pursue those magnificent birds, I did spend many an hour over a good few years lying around in the undergrowth or behind makeshift screens/hides awaiting a kingfisher’s arrival. Adult birds were always more skittish than young ones, which tends to apply with most tricky species.

Alas, I’m too old for all that stuff now, but I’d be tempted by the prospect of working out how to get to within 12 ft of a red-backed shrike should the opportunity ever arise. Here’s to hoping, and at least you’ve already managed to get a shot you’re happy enough with to have shared here.

Again, well done and thanks for the reply.
