A 7d mkii And Slimbridge

Date: 08/12/2014
Location: WWT Slimbridge 
Observation: Started for Slimbridge with new 7D mkii, sunshine and blue skies it looked good ! So many new setting on mkii to try out and try to master, focus seemed quicker with lots of flight shots in focus.



Greylag Geese A Good Start


It would be rude not to take some shots of the incoming Bewick's


Some shots manual some on AV or aperture mode


Head on and in focus !!


The Bewick's seem happy with it !



 With plenty more to see, count them if you want ! 
Around 1000+  flock of Lapwing


MMM... Worms



 Although not all in focus, I like this 


Maccoa Duck Female, Low level


 The Common Cranes putting on a good show, 7 Cranes here today 


 Then from the Willow Hide I spied a Water Rail a nice surprise to end the trip, alot more work to do with camera I think .Overall I think 7D mkii is better than 7D, focus is quicker, feels smoother when taking shots but AV mode not sure think manual is for me. 



Weather: Cold with blue skies and some cloud 
Other Species: Water Rail, Buzzard, Peregrine Falcon, Sparrowhawk, Bewick Swan, Ruff, Plover, Lapwing - Plus Slimbridge Usuals.




Thanks for Looking !
