    The sun isn't always out soa big soft light sky creates a nightmare, IF I shoot manual for BIF I will use ISO 800 and a shutter of 800 on a crop sensor at 420mm non VR lens. But I much prefer shooting Aperture priority with auto ISO set at a min of 500 & max 16000 and a slowest shutter of 1/800 then I can use a quick change of exposure comp incase the bird drops to a lower height with a foliage background. Wildlife situations tend to change to fast that shooting in manual can just be a nightmare and make you miss many a shot.

    Yeah what Mick said.. feck the sky. If you are going to shoot in aperture priority then I would say use centre weighted metering and exposure compensation set to about +1.7 for shoot birds in flight against the sky or you will just end up with silhouettes.

    lol I loved the little fker, mind they look a bit more nasty when soaked due to rain, bit more cute when fluffy. Hard little bastards love to demolish a squirrel they do.

    Had a cracking few days up in the Highlands, we rented a cottage that a Pine Marten visits every night, was superb to see. Driving at night in the pissing rain to Oban so we could get the Ferry next day to Mull although fun was a nightmare as we hit a deer, made a right old mess of the front end. Then been out today to see if we could find a Tawny happy to say we did

    Cracking Osprey shots Mick, still yet to see one, we went to Kielder on Sunday to see if we could see one but got distracted by the signs at Hexham for the Falconry Days bird of prey center. IF anyone wants a cracking cheap day out this place is well WORTH a visit we ended up there till after closing, ran by cracking people with an amazing array of birds. Wasn't expecting to be given a glove and have a Harriss Hawk come land on my hand but what a buzz my wife and daughter also had a go to we were all blown away. https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100005582388529&sk=photos&co
