Great Peter and Dirk, I'll start a participant list for the 24th next week and I'll make sure you're on it. Hopefully less rain by then.

Yes, with better weather I planned to escape from my obligations, but now, no.


Cu at the 24th, when I'm not to exhausted from 2CV driving home...

Here's the weatherforecast for tomorrow in Dordrecht



Basically continuous rain until about 15:00 but after that even a little sunshine.

Even though the weather foracasters hall of fame is an empty building (great quote Fred ) I think most forecasts I've heard on radio/television say it's clearing up in the afternoon.

So I think it's wise to postpone the normal meeting planned for tomorrow to oktober 24, I think the chances that the rain will move away faster are zero to none.

The late afternoon/dinner/evening plan still looks feasible and we have Fred, Domien, Leo and myself as potential participants, but of course everybody is welcome to join.
In case Leo's fear (rain staying around much longer) we can still cancel that tomorrow around noon.

So in short:

1: The "official" meeting is postponed until oktober 24
2: A smaller group (but everybody welcome) will decide about a late afternoon/evening shoot tomorrow around noon
    In case it goes ahead I suggest we'll meet around 15:00 in "Dordts Genoegen", Voorstraat 256, 3311 ET Dordrecht and take it from there.

I would appreciate if everybody can post below that they have seen that the meeting is postponed until the 24th, I always worry someone still shows up at 10:30 in the meeting place and finds himself there alone. I really would like to avoid that at all cost.


A bump/repeat. Since we're on a new page


Hi Pieter and others,
Yes I have seen this post, and can confirm that the weather on 3 October was awful in Rotterdam until about 3:30 pm.

Since you are moving to 24 October, you can also count me in.

Reading the posts above (and some guessing) the group for the 24th looks to be:

- @Jetsplace + Marcel (depending on dog sitting/carrying capabilities)
- KoBra64
- overeema
- Fred_S
- der dickgg
- Harm vb (depending on the state of exhaustion after a long 2CV drive)
- Snegren
- Dirk
- rvangompel
- Dopol
- addy landzaat
- pegelli



Not 100% sure about darosa

Just post below if you want to join, there's plenty room for more, even if you're not mentioned in this post or I forgot to include you.


But now the bad news, weather for Dordrecht the 24th looks like ~4,5 mm of rain over the entire day at the moment, but too far away to see when it will fall. Also still far away, so it might still change. So watch this space for any updates. Let's keep our fingers crossed the late morning & afternoon is dry.

Is there anyone joining with a serious long e-mount lens (like the 200-600) ?
I'm still hooked on my good old A900 and a A77II.
As I'm planning to expand to some more serious birding next spring, I consider to switch to e-mount.
(the alternative is long A-mount lenses but then it will be legacy MinO stuff like 400/4.5+TC or even longer.
The Somy 500/4 is extremely rare and expensive.
So E-mount is an option, but I'm quite unfamiliar with it
So I'm eager to hear some advises on gear, both body and lenses, during the meet.

Thanks Pieter.

Dordrecht is fine by me (for a walk not a swim ), never been there but I can imagine that those who attended october the 3rd would like a different environment. But maybe Dordrecht is big enough for a second visit.
Just a thought.
