Yip, it was a great meet. It's always good to meet new people and put a face to the "name"... :lol:

It was extremely cold, my car said it was 3 deg C when we arrived! :shock: We all took out our coffee cans, had a quick cup of coffee to warm us up and then we entered the bird sactuary! Wow, really nice place, the name Bird Haven suits it perfectly!

We got our gear out and waited for the sun to rise further. While waiting for the sun, we chatted along about settings, techinques etc. Great shot there by the way Mellory!

Here are some of my bird pics, but I need to return as I really need some more practise on my bird photography...:

A few attemps with Birds in Flight, but I need quite a bit of practise here as well and need to catch the light better to expose the birds better:
