Prior to going on a family break-away to the berg and a trip up Sani Pass this last week (more pics to follow once processed), I borrowed a friends Canon 7D ( <!-- s:bouncy: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/bouncy.gif" alt=":bouncy:" title="Enthusiastic" /><!-- s:bouncy: --> ) with Sigma 150-500mm lens as my lens is in for repairs. <!-- s:cry: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_cry.gif" alt=":cry:" title="Crying or Very sad" /><!-- s:cry: -->

Here are a few of the images whilst trying to teach myself how to use the 7D - an awesome piece of machinery but needs time to master.

Thanks Jo,

It was brief (less than an hour), but fun all the same. By the way, there is bird ringing at Darvill on 23 July from 05:30. The prospect of seeing this procedure kinda grabs me but it's COLD at that time of the morning in that area.

Hi Jo,

I'm sure you can as the invitation was posted on facebook as a public event - look for "Bird ringing with Mark Brown". Let me know if you're attending!

Go to [url:33jjbg0h]http://www.facebook.com/find-friends/index.php#!/event.php?eid=126676900751005[/url:33jjbg0h]

Cheers,
Dave
