Thanks as always for reading my last blog and your kind replies – I didn't get a definitive answer on the the mystery bird, so I'll have to get a better photo next time!
It's so difficult to get a decent photo of wildlife and it more often for us amateurs it's a lot of luck – right place right time – oh and a camera ready to shoot!
When you watch the nature programmes that follow the professional photographers you realise the painstaking amount of time, effort and patience they put in for "that" picture or film clip. I've taken most of my wildlife photos using a digital SLR camera with quite a powerful zoom but to be honest I think I could have got the same or even better shots using a quality 'bridge' camera like the Casio EXFH25 (yes this is the camera being used when I put on a blonde wig to show off the slo-mo feature!!).
It's priced at an Introductory Price of £349.92 and has a fantastic 20 x zoom and records HD video, which my SLR can't. It's been well reviewed gaining 4.5 / 5.0 from 13 reviews at the time of posting this.
However, if you don't want to take pictures but just get closer to the action why not try the Sunagor Compact Binoculars that have an amazing 15 – 70 High Power zoom? I haven't had a chance to try them myself, but it could be worth trying them out under our 30-day money-back guarantee.
I know I showed a picture of a roe buck last week but I'm including another taken this week as the buck in question has been injured down its flank; my guess is that it may have been caused during rutting, but who knows? The good news is he's looking very healthy despite his scrape.
Couldn't resist including the mother and chick song thrush either!
Till next week,
