Glossy Ibis, Hoopoe and a New Camera

I picked up my new Nikon P900 on Thursday and was desperate to try it out, so with a dry morning forecast I was heading for Felbrigg.

Reading the last of yesterday messages on the pager I diverted and headed for Crostwick instead in hope of the Hoopoe.

No joy after hour and half of searching and I only got to take one picture of this House Sparrow

I then went to Felbrigg, walked straight to the lake and to the Glossy Ibis.

The bird showed really well and after half hour of watching it I went to test the camera properly

I took a few picture to get a real feel for it, below is a demonstration of its zoom capabilities its amazing

Partially Zoomed In

Full range optical

And although all concept of quality has gone once in digital zoom it could come in handy for those mega rare record shots.


I then headed home but couldn't resist the temptation of the Hoopoe so I went back for a look.

An considering it was pouring with rain I was impressed with these pictures also, even if the Hoopoe wasn't
