After the disappointnent of the kingfisher pics. a couple of weeks ago I studied the camera and decided to ignore the instructions and set it myself. The light was a little better today but no kingfisher. Instead I had to make do with a grey wagtail. These pics. are the result.
I focused manually on the post that the wagtail was feeding from with and waited for the bird to fly in to shot and then let fly with the frames.
