In the morning the weather and light was just as good. I could test the Nikkor 500f/5.6 a bit more extensively at the Kugelbake. On the way back, a more rarely seen species sat on one of the fences. I am almost sure that this is a tree pipit. So far I am more than […]

It has been a while that I did some bird photography. Since some days there is a little wren every morning in a tree close by singing loudly his melody and he does never get tired. So, I decided to take some pictures. While doing so, also an Eurasian tree sparrow and a Chiff chaff […]

Assignation at the feeder place. Besides several Eurasian Tree Sparrows and Great Tits, a Greenfinch and a Hedge Sparrow showed up during a 1h session. Unfortunately the Long-tailed Tits did not pass by. Have only seen them once here and the shots I took are not really worth to be kept.

Not a lot of action at Polder Glies but at least I was able to shoot my first cuckoo ever. The little Barn Swallow wasn’t scared and sat at the look out so I had to move backwards to get into shooting distance.
Unbelievable combination. The D7200 and the Sigma 150-600 S plus TC-1401 does perform so fantastic. This combo results in viewing angle of approx. 1260mm equivalent in FX. These results really open the question whether one needs to spend 8 to 10k€ for a prime lens… (still on my wishlist though :-))
