Field Trials

I've just bought my wife Jan, a new camera in a somewhat lame attempt to develop her interest in 'wildlife' photography so we can both enjoy holidays with a joint interest in birds. I decided to get to know the camera in the field but as all the fields were sodden with persistent rain I needed somewhere with hides. The Tame valley is probably flooded, so I went to Brandon Marsh near Coventry. The majority of birds of interest were on the main island on the East Marsh lagoon so it would be a good test of the new camera in the poor light. The main target was a pair of Garganey. There was also a single Dunlin.
