My afternoon birding in an Hotel Garden provided the following results.
Due to a flat camera battery, I had use use my 7D camera, with the available light in the shade of trees I needed to use an ISO setting of 800. I was disappointed with some of my photo results.
But in all fairness of the 7D I have not previously used it with my 500 mm lens, so part of the problem could be down to myself. The main problem was the amount of noise and the lack of feather details in the original files.

I manged to see and photo

NIghtjar
Eastern Nightingale (a lifer for me)
Garden Warbler ( a lifer for me)
Lesser Whitethroat
Red- Breasted Flycatcher. only a second sighting for me. The bird was at a far distance so a tight crop and the shots are a little OOF

Congratulations on 2 new lifers John. Good series although I think you overdid the noise reduction on some.
