Olympus 'Bird AI' was not used for these shots - I generally find it very unreliable as most of my bird shots are amongst trees and bushes etc and so I have given up selecting it.

Neither was 'Pro Capture' used - I haven't used it yet and prefer photos of birds landing rather than taking off.

This first shot of the resident Wren in my wildlife garden wasn't a take-off but was to very boldly ward off a cat - I quickly 'assisted'! The Wren remained and posed for more photos.

Two excellent images Robin, number1 is superb and timed to perfection. More challenging than capturing the surfers;)

.... One of my nest boxes has residents again too and in spite of a Woodpecker smash-n-grab last year which I didn't witness.

BLUE TIT NEST BOX #1 by Robin Procter, on Flickr
Yes we had that problem a few years ago too. Not sure if it was a woodpecker, but we do get them in the garden.

We had a webcam in the box and were dismayed when we saw flies buzzing, no parents and apparently dead chicks. We spotted a slight movement and ended up rescuing two of the chicks. After a few weeks at the rescue centre, they fledged

We have two boxes occupied this year

.... Looks like the work of a Woodpecker on this one and there is a Great Spotted in my 'BackYard' wilderness. This nestbox is about 17ft off the ground. The other 2 nestboxes aren't occupied yet but one of them usually has Great Tits.

Quick question - anyone able to say what distance the OMD1 Mark 2 wifi will work, so if i set the camera up, start the wifi, how far away can I be with an iPhone to control it?

A heron. I was out with the Pen-F and popped the 75mm on as there were herons about. A lucky hit as I wasn't ready for it and had the focus settings all wrong.

Great result for the Pen F. I love my Pen F for some things, but getting birds in flight would be a challenge with it. Well done!

Not an iPhone but I have managed 5m for sure but I recall being a lot further more like 10m.

Has anyone got a 37mm CPL they’re looking to dispose of ? If so, I’ll pop a wanted ad up

OK, I can update. About 20m max. Things slow down, so it’s not as useful as I thought it might be. Oh, and the camera went to sleep reasonably quickly when I was out of range. I need to look at settings.

Edited with one I got. No woodpecker, and on a feeder rather than a stick, but a good start...
