I took a bike run to the Swan Pond this morning to try out my new FUJIFILM FINEPIX 2980 that I bought a few days ago.It is a bridge camera so I wasn’t expecting it be a good as the camera I had been using, the FUJIFILM S9500. Colin had gave me this as he had upgraded to a beautiful NIKON camera, unfortunately I dropped it and it broke, so I was left with nothing to use.
So I will do a full review of the S2980 later and give my opinion on it for FWN viewers to read.Anyway the pond was full of interesting birds and animals and I was well chuffed to get some shots of some Swallows (which I have been trying to get for some time). They were perched only a few feet from the hedge I was leaning against and as you see below, they are quite good.
There were lots of Swallows about due to the hot weather and the abundance of flies around the fields and they were in full voice and inquisitive of what I was doing.
I could hear a Buzzard above me and two Herons were in the far field, but it was to the far off wood which took my interest.Through the binoculars I spotted three Deer, two adults and a young one, nestling in the grass.Although they were far off I tried out the zoom on the S9800 and got a shot.
Hopefully sometime soon I will try and get some closer shots of the Deer, the wood seems to have a lot of possibilities in getting some good nature photos.
