Good capture of a very fine looking bird, I think the image is a bit soft and a some sharpening could help, well seen and taken and thanks for sharing

Thanks Steve - I have tried sharpening but does not seem to make much difference. I was using a Canon EF 75-300mm lens at full bore, which I have found to be quite soft.

A very good effort especially considering the distance from camera, and what a pretty looking bird she is.

I used to have the 75-300mm lens, too, and found it soft at the extreme end. I traded it in in the end. They are attractive birds and I hope that where she has nested will not be affected by any flooding should we have any more. It's a good capture, all things considered; you even have a catchlight. The background is a little bright so if you want this as a "keeper" it may be worth toning it down a little.

Sorry I am late with my comment. A good capture of this lovely bird & good eye contact & some nice details on his fur. Well taken.
