Mistle Thrush

For a while this mistle thrush has been visiting a small Rowan in my front garden, but he is very shy and I usually just see him flying away. Which is nice because I cannot remember the last time I saw one around here. This morning I was able to grab three shots through a bedroom window quickly using the 150-450mm lens on a K1 handheld, all just cropped slightly. I use a preset of TAV with 1/1000 sec and f8 but the ISOs are rather high so I have reduced the noise a bit in Lightroom; by the time I have twirled the exposure down the bird had flown (again) so I have added exposure compensation of -2/3 to the preset and see if that gets better results next time.

Is that the Wellesbourne mistle thrush?
Lots of gear - but not a lot of idea!

I think that one escaped from Kineton.

Nice ones.

Haven't seen one for years, we only get the occasional thrush in the garden and they don't stay long enough or close to get a good shot of them.

Cheers,

Howard
