I can't believe how close to the school the pylon is you would have thought they would have done something about it noing the risk to childrens health. The Jay in the tree was lovely. Fudge

Thanks Fudge  ;D   Georgia thought that particular budgie was a Parrot, now you think it's a Jay  ;D , It's a Goldfinch !!
Now I know all my childhood years spent bird watching were not in vain  :D

Lovely, but don't the horn pippers annoy you when you are filming, they seem to think they are being funny...not  >:(. That was a lovely shot of the Goldfinch.

My PJ10 has a really good zoom, but I think i need to invest in a mono pod, to keep the damn thing still  ;D

I had the same problem using the zoom so I bought a second hand Gitzo Mono Trek mono pod that doubles as a hiking pole, should have cost 130 new, but got it off ebay for 60, it was great when I filmed the Barnacle Geese at a nature reserve in Scotland, no wobble at full zoom and as its a hiking pole it comes in handy walking over rough ground.
