Local walk on a crisp day

A few miles from where we live is a lovely walk along a small
stream which leads into a major river, we have breeding
Dippers, Kingfishers, and a very rare Lesser Spotted
woodpecker, unfortunately we don't often see
them, only its bigger cousin, I have just bought
a new Nikon P900 camera, and sold all my heavy
gear, and admitted I am a bit long in the tooth
for carrying all this heavy gear, I must say
I have been impressed with the results.

I love my P900, and whilst I'm sure DSLR+ in lenses gives "better" results, the P900 better suits my requirements, most impressively (for me) with smaller subjects like dragonflies and butterflies. Enjoy yours, and I'd love to see pics of the lesser spotted pecker if you ever catch up with it.

It seems to be a very popular camera. and I am certainly impressed, I will
post the lesser if we ever catch up with it again, but I feel
it has like many of its kind succumbed to a bad fate.

I quite agree with you about carrying heavy kit around Hawkeye. This is why I stopped taking my larger scope and tripod far from the car. I now have a little travel scope that can be hand held ot stuck on a very light monopod. What I really need to do is train the grandsons up as sherpas and load them up.
