Superb photo -

The Blackbird fledglings in my garden are doing likewise, but the weather has been too dull to try for a shot.

Thanks

It was a bit dull. I had a lot of trouble on dull days because if I wanted a fast exposure time to catch motion, the ISO rating shot up, and the image was grainy.

In the end I bought a Canon 5D MkIII, which is really good in low light. I'm delighted with it!

Regards

Simon
