    Shot at the Slimbridge WWT site in Gloucestershire, X-Pro 2 and 50-230mm. The birds get quite used to people and the hides so you can get decent shots without needing the 100-400...

    Great shot Andy. Slimbridge is one of my favourite places, have not been there for a while. Your shot is now tempting me to go back soon!

    Cheers, Peter

    @Pedro1948 it's a very nice place to visit. We have WWT membership and go quite often.

    @Devaman agree completely. Excellent for the price.

    @barry S that's with tweaks to levels, saturation, vibrance and clarity in ACR then I applied the Basics/Detailed preset in Luminar with a bit of sharpening courtesy of a Wolfson X-Trans sharpening preset.
