  1. Envious of the Swamphen! Nice images added all round.
  2. You need to enrol to view the sales section but this web site has some great deals from private buyers. http://www.birdforum.net/forum.php As I have been a member for some years I guess I recognise some names of buyers and sellers and I have been both and never yet had a problem. There was a Canon 100-400 Mk 1 made in 2009 going for £450 a few weeks ago and although it says sell to UK only I bet he'd send it to Ireland.
  3. Good to see you have kicked off at last Michael! Red Kites are fairly common in Wales having been successfully reintroduced a good few years back. You see them in Southern England particularly flying over the M40 motorway looking for road kill.
  4. The 2 Americans are certainly a bonus. Been sat on these a while I see!
  5. The other benefit is that everything is booked for our 2018 trip . Getting accommodation in the parks is likely to be very, very difficult for such short notice and places are getting booked up for 2019 already.
  6. Anything is doable if you want to spend most of your time driving. Your given plan is very loose to say the least, if you want advice I suggest you make it a lot more detailed giving stopping places for each day. As you work it out you might realise for yourself just what is involved in terms of distances and driving times.
  7. Permission to go granted! Now I need to do some back ground research.

  9. Happy when the snake is out in the open, it's on the floor and hidden I'm worried about. You have some lovely pigeons/doves, or at least I assume a Bronzewing is by the look of it.
  10. Cracking Osprey and a shame it missed! I see you had the same problem as me with the Orange-cheeked Waxbills as I did. In this circumstance back focus button doesn't help too much unless you can hold your setup rock steady but manual focus is also impossible with a longer lens . I gave up! Yes, almost definitely the same Flycatcher, I wonder what else!

  14. 180)Canada Goose Recipe for cooking one is to wrap it in foil, shove it in the oven with a brick and when the brick is tender the goose is ready to eat. Canada Goose by Dave Williams, on Flickr
  15. 179)Common Redshank This could easily have been the Gambia but it actually here in North Wales. The sun came out today so I headed down to our local reserve for an hour. Redshank by Dave Williams, on Flickr
