In November 2021 I was lucky enough to spend a day in this excellent hide, with some phenomenal sightings of the Common Buzzard and Red Kite.
It was a full day, arriving at 06:30 and staying until after dusk. During that time I had a variety of weather and light conditions, from heavy mist, a gorgeous pastel sunrise, grey skies, dull and dark, to short intervals of bright sunshine.
I used four different bodies: EOS 1DXII, EOS 5DIV, EOS 5DIII, and EOS 7DII; plus three lenses: 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 with a 1.4x extender, a 300mm f/2.8, and a 600mm f/4.
To finish off I'd like to share my rogue's gallery. I have always been fascinated with the large variety of plumage on buzzards, and I am pretty sure each and every one of these images represents a different bird, all seen in the one day at the Raptor Hide.
