Water Rail

Sorry for my lack of posting this last month, I have had a lack of material but still enough for a few posts so I hope to put a few out over the next week or so.

Today I got my first pictures of Water Rail, these have been showing well in scarborough's Northstead Manor Gardens since our freeze over a week ago. I was hoping for reports this am. so that I knew chances were good but nothing until 11:40 which reported two birds.

When I got there one bird was present and a short while after there was two, always distant or elisive for a while in awful light. Finally though it did brighten a yad and one bird showed well in a pool not to far off. Some shots were as low as ISO 1250!

Taken with Canon 40D, Sigma 50-500mm lens, 500mm focal length 1/320sec f6.3

Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your post seem to be
running off the screen in Safari. I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I thought I'd post to let you know.
The design and style look great though! Hope you
get the problem solved soon. Thanks
