    Well I finally got a chance to go down to Minsmere on Wednesday - and now I've got to go again. Saw quite a few birds, but sadly nothing was coming closer to the hides - I finally got to 400mm and I felt like I needed 500 to 600mm idealy. Still I have to say dispite the range problem the 70-200mm f2.8 IS L M2 + 2*TC really performed very well!

    Now I've got to go back and get closer - that or take my macro lens (some very interesting flies and I saw mating dragons!)
