Catch up post, lots of pics

I haven't had time for birding or blogging this week, with the exception of an out-of-the-bedroom-window job. Here's some pics from the weekend and some Starling pics from the house:

And here's a pic of the Moon which I took on Saturday. It's not particularly close (it's been cropped), my lens is ONLY a 300mm... Well, I say 300mm, but I combined the lens with stacked 1.4x and 2x extenders, and with the 1.6x crop factor of the APS-C sized sensor in my camera body, this set up gave a focal length of 1344mm. Only downside of this is needing to take the shot with the aperature set at f20 (all in manual mode obviously) and needing to use a tripod and remote release to try and combat blurring caused by slow shutter speeds. It's worth clicking on this pic and dragging it around in the enlarged view...

Craters are nice and obvious!
