Young Gulls In action

I cant say enough about the A7r4 from a birding point of view it is a joy to use and the keeper rate is unmatched to any body and Lens i have ever owned. If i miss a couple of images its because of user error, but its just fantastic the way it keeps track of the birds. Yes i know there not the fastest birds to judge a camera on, but you find me someone who posts images on a trusted review of Fast moving birds. There always Eagles or Osprey in fantastic light and perfect conditions.

I just love any bird and to look at the agility of the bird wing shapes and movement like a hawk the young gulls are very fast and never do the same thing twice so you act on impulse, but its lovely to see all the different positions they get into when you edit. I turned them to Black and White for a better look at the feather shape and detail.

I am 63 years old and and since a boy have had an interest in wildlife and in particular birds. I help my Dad with the rearing of young finches and other birds. I had many small birds as pets and as i got older and joined the Military i purchsed my first Camera, and fold out Kodak. Over a 22 year period i enjoyed many countries outside the uk and observed many species of birds. When i left the military in 2000, i bought my first digital camera a Canon 450D with a Tamron 70-300 and started my journey on capturing images of birds and animals. I quickly learned that there was a lot more to getting a good image of a bird, so i started to research the best settings for my camera in order to capture a better image. Over a 12 month period i realised that needed to invest in a better camera and lens and after research bought a Canon 50D and a 100-400 Lens. It was 2013 when i really got to grips with the setup and came across a lovely Short Eared Owl. From that meeting i started to concentrate on Owls as they fasinated me. From Canon to Olympus i recently jumped ship again to Sony. The variety of birds i have captured over a 10 year period is vast and at present i have a wildlife hide in lancashire where most of my images are captured.
