Still on the river


I haven't done much birding at all in the last 2 weeks. I had a bad back, it was pretty hot and my main lens is in a Canon Service Center somewhere in south Japan.

It wasn't so hot today. The Crested Kingfisher family were on the same stretch of river as 2 weeks ago. A shame I only had the 100-400 as they were reasonably close.

Other stuff around included lots of Ospreys on the coast as well as some Japanese Green Pigeon. Yesterday there were Great Egret and Wood Sandpiper in the ricefields. I hope my big lens comes back before the waders season gets going.

  2. It's bad when both both optics and your own body are a little poorly. Enjoy the rest Stu. You'll be back to normal soon.

    1. The lens is only 5 years old, I'm nearly 50 however so yes things are starting to get broken and not work as well as before.............

  3. Get well soon...... personally I'm hoping that a set of "Mirrorless" cameras and lenses will solve all our gear weight worries...

  4. Stu, you made me think where does your wine come from? I suppose you get lots of Aussie rather than European. Unless of course the locals do a nice chianti?

    1. It is imported from all the usual places with a lot of the cheaper stuff (which is what I drink) from Chile.
