Backyard Birds in Nanjing

It would certainly be fair to say that I haven’t done a lot of birding since coming to China in 2016 but as some sage observed you can never actually stop watching birds once you start. I notice big birds soaring high in the sky, I notice small birds bouncing around the grounds of my apartment, I feel a thrill when that unique sibilant resonance of pied kingfishers rouses me from my inner thoughts as I stroll along the riverside path. And I have made a couple of forays purely for birds and more are planned.

On Monday I bought a MFT 300 mm Olympus m.Zuiko telephoto lens which gives me a focal range of 600 mm. Wow! I am now officially a recovering digiscoper.

And sorry this probably means more dodgy photograph!
