Back to Thorp Perrow

Went back to Thorp Perrow back again as I bought a season ticket.... took my lovely photo friend with me so we could shoot the birds of prey together... again using the D700, Sigma 70-300mm for the birds and for the landscapes a combination of the Sigma 20mm and my Nikon 28-105mm walkaround lens... Managed to get a few shots of the barn owl that I missed earlier in the week. The barn owl is fast and small, very hard to capture.. Here are the results of the day

Thorp Perrow

So I went back to Thorp Perrow with my camera.. to be honest it was far too sunny and bright for photos but did the best that I could given the circumstances... Here are a few shots of the day... Using various lenses (70-300 for the owl) and the D700. I used my 'action' settings bank that I had previously set up on the owl using shutter priority and auto ISO and tracked the owl as it flew.. a feature that I love with the D700, though not perfect it's not bad....
