Buzzards again

A pair of Common Buzzard inspecting their nest prior to repair before the nesting season. Taken from my bedroom window at a distance of 100 metres with Nikon P900

Re: Buzzards again

Thank you Garry. It is interesting that images of this quality from the Nikon P900 aren't guaranteed but at least I can get them with a bit of effort, whereas the Canon/Sigma setup is more consistent but has never produced this detail on the same subjects.

Are you finding yourself using the Nikon P900 more than your Canon ?

Have to admit. The picture quality that this Nikon produces, is really good.

Re: Buzzards again

Just... wow. We've got buzzards nearby, but not that close! Excellent shot (and I've peeked at your Flickr stream too - particularly liked the chaffinch at 250mm

Yes I am using the Nikon more but this won't be the norm as better weather comes. The Canon outfit can do a whole lot more, including BIF, than the Nikon, so come the big birding trips the Nikon will be there but in the bag most of the time - only brought out for flowers and insects etc.
