Taking at Stokenchurch near Ofrod in Buckinghamshire on a day spent entirely looking for and watching these great birds now successfully reintroduced in many areas. This area has in excess of 20 pairs and they are to be seen over a wide area but come together to be fed at a small cafe in their car park and if you are lucky enough to find it you can expect to be close enough , with a good lens, to try for some spectacular pictures.
Canon 60d + 100-400 is zoom (switched off!) with the camera set on manual but still using the autofocus on the action setting.
F6.3 , 1/1250 , Iso 320 , @380 mm.
