    A visit to this stunning new reserve, still undergoing development, was a little disappointing as there were fewer bird numbers than of late. Nearly all the Godwits, once up to 4,000 in number, had gone and only a few migrants were to be found after much searching.

    Little Egret, with E-M5 plus Canon 400mm plus 1.4x:

    Little Stint, with E-M5 and 75-300mm:

    P9200763.

    P9200767.

    Whinchat, with E-M5 and 75-300mm, slight subject movement:

    P9200747.

    Curlew Sandpipers, with E-M5 and Canon 400 plus 1.4x and 2x DTC. (80 metres distant):

    P9200799.

    P9200814.

    And a Black Tailed Godwit that the E-M5 couldn't AF on - roll on the E-M1!

    Nice photo's, I went to Arne RSPB nature reserve yesterday, not many birds down there either. Must be the time of year where the summer birds have more or less gone and the winter birds are yet to come.
