    Bright with a very cold Easterly wind greeted me at this superb new reserve. The cold however didn't seem to bother the birds as there were a large number - all very active (at least 800 Dark-bellied Brent Geese).

    This was a day to get in the hides with the E-M5/Canon EF 400mm f5.6 combination. Manual focus skills are coming back after years of AF and the magnification assistance on the EVF are a boon on the E-M5.

    The lens is a gem and the extra reach of the 400mm is a distinct advantage when added to the resolution of the sensor. Without doubt this lens' IQ is better even than the ED300mm f2.8 + EC14 which is surprising considering that it is around 1/6th of the cost of that combo.

    All but the Yellowhammer were taken with this outfit. All large crops.
