Bird-wise, the forest was bursting with warblers. Six species all in good numbers, including at least 4 Lesser ‘throats. Otherwise a Cormorant, a pair of Common Terns (one ringed), a Gadwall, a Cuckoo, a few peckers, lots of Chaffinches and a couple of distant Fallow deer.
I took the 1.4x converter on the 100-400 lens. I used the standard configuration (manual focus) to see how accurate I could be focussing by eye. Overall conclusion is its okay with stationary birds, but I think for faster birds I’ll need to consider taping the pins.
