Today I drove from my work to home off the highway, using the sand road driving along the floods drainage channel (which is full of sea water year long, even without floods) up to the "flamingo ponds" (which are actually salt ponds in which a large group of flamingos stays year long).
The channel is full of herons and egrets (and other water birds), the flamingo ponds are full of flamingos, herons and other water birds. And there are many other small birds, including bee-eaters and kingfishers, and of course also some desert birds and raptors. So it is really nice! I need to do it more often! (And I need a longer reach! For example, the new 200-600mm lens...).

Here are some examples from today drive:

Grey heron

Sony ILCE-7RM2 + Sony 70-400mm F4-5.6 G SSM (SAL70400G) | 400.0 mm | f/5.6 | 1/2000 Sec | ISO 200

Grey heron in flight

Sony ILCE-7RM2 + Sony 70-400mm F4-5.6 G SSM (SAL70400G) | 400.0 mm | f/5.6 | 1/2000 Sec | ISO 200

Western reef heron

Sony ILCE-7RM2 + Sony 70-400mm F4-5.6 G SSM (SAL70400G) | 400.0 mm | f/5.6 | 1/2000 Sec | ISO 200

Little egret

Sony ILCE-7RM2 + Sony 70-400mm F4-5.6 G SSM (SAL70400G) | 400.0 mm | f/5.6 | 1/2000 Sec | ISO 200

Great egret

Sony ILCE-7RM2 + Sony 70-400mm F4-5.6 G SSM (SAL70400G) | 400.0 mm | f/5.6 | 1/2000 Sec | ISO 200

The examples look fine to me! #1 and 4 are my favourites.
No need for a new lens Shay. If I were your partner, you had to come up with a more convincing reason to justify that lens

Thank you Fred!
Of course I posted only the one which were successful in terms of focus and details. There were many missed. And, as you may notice, these are only big birds and the static ones are better.
For the smaller birds my set up was not good enough. Below are two best examples of the bee-eater and the kestrel. They are not as good and there are many more which are just bad - blurry or without details due to too heavy crop.

Green bee-eater

Sony ILCE-7RM2 + Sony 70-400mm F4-5.6 G SSM (SAL70400G) | 400.0 mm | f/5.6 | 1/2000 Sec | ISO 200

Common kestrel

Sony ILCE-7RM2 + Sony 70-400mm F4-5.6 G SSM (SAL70400G) | 400.0 mm | f/5.6 | 1/2000 Sec | ISO 200

Anyways, remind me to not let you talk with my wife...

I wish I could be down there. I am dreaming of coming over there next spring break.

Few more from the recent beach holiday, now I'm once again back at my Azure addiction having found out there's a nest in my usual reserve.

Great Cormorant

Little Wattlebird

Variegated fairywren, my nemesis for the whole week as it just would not hop out of the undergrowth when I had the camera out.
