Looking good as always Alan, the first deer shot is the winner for me. The TC looks to have great IQ, looking forward to mine arriving!

Excellent. We've not been to Washington WWT yet, but it's on the To Do list. You've encouraged me to move it up the list!
Best regards, John

My very thought. Its a classy set of images Alan. I'm ashamed to admit that I've never been to Washington Wetlands yet I live so close. I didn't know they had flamingos there - that alone might get me heading that way.

Great stuff, Alan, as ever. Love the third bluebell shot in particular, but all are terrific.

I finally wilted and ordered a 1.4 TC yesterday, so it's only a matter of time before I'm irretrievably snared by a 12-months-interest-free deal on a DA300...

As for the WWT, I've been a member for several years and can commend the centres I've visited - Arundel, Barnes (London), Slimbridge, Martin Mere and Welney. Washington now added to the must-do list...

Nice Alan but not sure about the second shot of the Deer's backside as I am sitting having me tea

Thanks all. Much appreciate you taking the time to give feedback.

Closest I've managed to get to Roe deer. They had found their way into a field and couldn't find the way out. The buck finally managed to jump the fence. But then he jumped back for her. I had to choose my moment, when they were right in front of the hide I was in. Then I rushed out shouting, sending them across to the far side of the field where they found the exit. All ended well

Its the first time I've been to Washington Wetlands and it is quite local. A thoroughly enjoyable afternoon. Just disappointed I missed feeding time for the Asian Otters
