    @Lez325

    Les, are these all full frame of crops? And if a mixture can you recall which ones are which?

    TIA for the insight & feedback :)

    PS just planning ahead based on your experiences there and FL's used.

    Nice series, especially the siskin. Could it be improved with a tad more exposure?

    Thanks all- as I said, a really dull windy day - exposure was a Biatch :) :)

    any better?

    Well, I have been given a voucher :D

    Need to think when would be a good time to go? I surmise it can get quite booked......if choosing say a Sunday or Monday, is either of those likely to be 'better'?

    Best to call Dean and ask for availability - I went on Saturday with 2 other people so there was only 3 of us in the hide- the reflection pool has seating for 3 so ideal for us- I suspect a Monday would be a better day -, unless you choose a Bank Holiday :)

    Hi Lez

    Thanks for the insight. Will have to look at the calendar and then get in touch with him to discuss as appropriate.

    The GSW on the handle is my fave (y)

    Although, you could quite easily clone out the food around its beak. You're good at PP Les, so I reckon it'd be a doddle for you :) Also wondering if you've shot it full frame or whether you've got space to turn it into a portrait showing the full handle?

    The other GSW shots don't do anything for me as the food/bait is on show.

    Hide sounds nice though :)
