          We had some good views of these Short-Eared Owls up at Burwell Fen, part of National Trust Wicken Fen reserve Cambridgeshire yesterday.

          Worth a visit - Owl action started around 2:30 to 3:00pm when we went, also when all the folks with big camera lenses turn up..except for me and at least one other guy with Oly gear

              Here's one of the locals from Calke Abbey in Derbyshire. Thought I'd post one last shot from the gallery before the forum gets updated.

                      was this a big crop .. currently in a quandary on whether to sell my PL100-400 and get a 300mm f4 simply for the better i.q and faster aperture ..

                        The Zuiko 300mm is a better lens. The combination of the Image Stabilisation (camera/lens) is really superb. However, I have kept my Pan 100-400, as its flexibility is valuable. When snaking in particular, the ability to zoom back is valuable.

                        As others have said, larger mammals deserve a smaller zoom. But in the long term, I like the Zuiko 300mm a lot..

                              • I'm posting these two partly to find out how it works in the new system. Both taken with the EM1ii and 100-400 as the 300/4 seems to have focussing problems and is on its way to Portugal. Both photos cropped (wouldn't have been necessary with the 300/4+MC20) but otherwise OOC.

                                These Brent geese were feeding on what we call slob weed in the Bosham Channel in Chichester Harbour. No doubt someone can give me the correct name.

                                Woodpeckers are a relatively rare visitor to our garden.
