    Thank you.

    Photos were at Cotswold Wildlife Park, near Burford. Huge variety of wildlife, a lot of which you can get almost within touching distance.

    Thanks for the info. Been there a few times by chance. When the bairns were younger we had a few years holidaying in our folding camper (think big trailer tent) and stayed at the Caravan Club site at Cirencester, we had some really good times down there. I had some great times in the Twelve Bells in Cirencester, when the irascible Bob had it. Happy days!

    Getting that Kingfisher to perch on a fishing rod is very nicely done

    The ones of the parrot and hornbill were the D750 with the 500mm f4 AF VR.

    The BoP were the D750 and the old, non-VR, 300mm f4 AF, which is one of my favourite lenses. As well as being a superb small telephoto it also offers very close focusing, which makes it almost like a mini macro lens (apologies for the non-bird image)



    Nikon have now replaced this with a VR version, which from all reports is better still.

    The beauty of the Nikon system is that the older lenses work with the newer bodies. I started with a manual focus 500mm f4 and then progressed to the AF VR version. Both lenses are out of the top drawer.

    Same at the other end of the focal length spectrum. I have the old manual 24mm f2.8 and it works just fine. I recently added on the slightly newer AF-D 20-35 f2.8 and it has become a favourite for when I occasionally need a wide angle.

    Good glass is good glass, regardless of age, and both Nikon and Canon have produced some truly outstanding glass over the years.

    Your D810 is from all reports a lovely camera. If you havenít already, check out the Moose Peterson and Thom Hogan websites for their recommended settings for the D810, which is a good way to get started.
    Thanks! I had (have) a D700 before but the resolution of the D810 is so high I will need to adjust the way I shoot. Here is a recent shot.

    Interesting that you say that, as I've also found with the D750 that the quality of the resolution - particularly when combined with a shallow depth of field - can sometimes trick the eye into seeing almost a 3D image.

    Again, apologies for the non bird related photo, but hopefully it shows what I mean:

    Thanks, although not sure whether you were talking tongue in cheek after your last picture

    Not at all!

    That guinea fowl photo was from Cotswold Wildlife Park, so not that exotic.

    Here are some shots from the bird feeder outside our kitchen window
