OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWelcome back!

As I mentioned in an earlier post, we are fortunate to live near an RSPB site and so have a wonderful range of birds in our garden. Today the Thrush reappeared – haven’t seen these for a while so went upstairs to get my camera and when I returned our Woodpecker, who also hasn’t visited for a while, was feeding on the fat square. A lucky coincidence as I already had my camera – they are very nervy and will fly off if you move too much.

Tip

If you are using a zoom lens remember your shutter speed must be at least equal to your focal length – ie if its a 200mm zoom make sure your shutter speed is well above 1/200
