We had a trip to Loe Pool today and as we were mobile I took the coolpix and left the D300 and lens at home. Scanning the pool from Loe Bar we had a reasonably close Pochard and further out in the lake we noticed the Long Tail Duck was still in residence, The distance (approx 100 to 150 metres) was to much for even mediocre photography, and armed only with a compact it made life more difficult. The photo's are record shots, and maybe should only be used for the rarer species.
