06 July 2013 Great Crested Grebes at Woolston.

09th July 2013
I paid a visit to Woolston Eyes on Saturday in the hope of capturing some shots of the Black-necked Grebes but as it happened I didn't manage anything worthwhile as far as they were concerned. However I did get some reasonable shots of Great crested grebes with a chick.

All the usual culprits were still around, Gadwall, Teal, Pochard, Coots, Little Grebe, Canada Goose, Greylag Goose, Moorhen, Cormorant, Buzzard flying over and many more birds were around.

I was expecting lots of really good photos especially with the light being extremely good but for whatever reason the quality wasn't as good as I'd like.


I know I had the 1.4x convertor fitted to the 500mm lens and Canon 7D which does reduce the quality somewhat but even so they were not nearly as good as what I was hoping for.

I'll have to some experimenting to see how to increase the number of savers.

Thanks for reading.
