Birds in Flight Sony A7R4 200-600+1.4 Ext

Out this morning on the coast and was lucky to arrive when the tide was just going out, so i was ready when the Sanderlings came in followed by the Oystercatcher all flying in fast to land. No problem for the 74 and 200-600to lock on to 95 percent and give me my best action shots of the both birds. Any tells you that the A7r4 is not a birding camera is has no skill at wildlife photography, the truth is in the images

All images were taken with the 1.4 extender fitted

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.
