Creek and Curlew Hide at Teifi Marshes 4th. Sept

Cormorant are nearly always perched on dead trees in the river but usually too far away to get decent photographs, this one was perched fairly close to the curlew hide:

Taken with my Canon 500mm lens with 1.4 converter, ISO500 f8 @ 1/1000sec

When we got to the Creek Hide we noticed that there were two snipe foraging around the creek - at a fair distance. The tide was coming in so as they moved with the tide they also came closer to the hide, but the light was quite difficult - we were looking directly into the sun:

This was f8 @ 1/320 sec. - over exposing the image by one and a half stops to allow for backlighting.
