Another video of my local Song Thrush, this time in HD! A friend lent me his 100-400 lens and 2X converter, which combined with the crop factor of the Canon 550D camera I used, gives an effective focal length of 1280mm!

It was shot at ISO 800, F18 (for sharpness) and 1/50s shutter speed. Amazing how much more detailed this video is compared to my previous one! That's what £££ in glass can do for you :-) ... Again the sound was picked up on the mono internal microphone - amazing how much of the bird's song you can still pick out!
