went out the the local jetty with my gear early Saturday morning to look for Lapland Longspurs.
These pretty birds come through about this time of year and like to hang out on the jetty for some reason.
The walk itself is over 4km and with the 500mm F4 and tripod etc. it took me 3 hours to walk to the end and back.
My shoulders were aching a bit and my feet were dead beat but I came back with some pics of the target bird so all is good
thanks for looking
