We were up at Sence Valley Forest Park in Leicestershire the other week with the OH’s folks. It wasn’t really a photography trip but was too good an opportunity to test the Canon 300mm f4 with the 1.4xII teleconverter.

This beautiful lady was sitting on her nest and thankfully the area was well fenced off to protect here.
