So, a Pied Oystercatcher then! Nice shot. They are hard to get close to.

Thank you RobG. I wish I had more reach. Has anyone got decent results with 55-300mm and TC?

I have tried the HDDA 55-300 PLM with the HDDA 1.4x TC but it would probably increase the vignetting, so you should expect to crop the corners unless there's enough light to use a decent f-stop. I didn't test it extensively. It was mainly to see if I could get a long focal length arrangement that was light for overseas travel when I can't carry the DFA 150-450. I should give it another try.

I was gonna say it looks like an Oyster Catcher to me... here we don't use a lot of big words, our speech is too slurred before we start speaking.

I looked it up and the English name is Oyster Catcher. The Norwegian name is "Tjeld". It is the national bird of Faroe islands and there it is called "Tjaldur".
