Been 3 months since I last took a walk down by the local river but with lockdown regulations eased this week I grabbed the first chance I got.

Thanks Michele, Robert and Fred. Yes they sing non stop for ages and since you often can't see them actually move the only way you can follow them through the reed bed is by sound.

Thanks Ton and Harm. This Reed Warbler would have been impossible to shoot without the incredible small spot focus capability of this camera. Manual focus theoretically possible but they're also always on the move so unlikely to succeed..

I will look into it and see if I can find a suitable printer or place to print them.
