My camera at the moment is a Nikon D80, this will shortly be replaced by a D300, it has a far superior auto focus system and also a higher ISO rating, the theory is that it will give me clearer photos, especially at dawn, this is when peregrines are most active.

Migration is now just round the corner, so I will likely step up the visits to Barking Bay, hopefully if spring was anything to go by with Little Stint, Dartford Warbler, Stone Curlew, Ring Ouzel, Red Breasted Merganser, Greater Scaup and Short Eared Owl, the autumn promises more goodies.

My money is on a Red Backed Shrike, I even know where it is going to perch…….
