Thanks, but I'll have to confess that the raw file wasn't as nicely exposed as this, and darktable really deserves the compliments

Cheers,
Terry
I've never used Darktable ... but I have been known to use DxO

With our without Darktable, a very nice image of a very nice bird. There's not much light over here so no long lenses for me....

Have you noticed that the default RAW processing by darktable is very muted colours? The JPG previews are much bright/saturated. Even Rawtherapee is fine.
I notice this from darktable 3.0 onwards. The older 2.x versions were great.

I've migrated to Oly Micro 4/3 for my long lens photography.
[M1-mk II, MZ 300/4 & 1.4 TC]

No puppies (or wasps) we injured in this encounter.

Thanks. You are quite right, it's the pp that usually makes the difference.

I haven't really noticed any difference in that regard, but I have seen comment about that.
Have you checked if the Pentax base curve is being applied?

Lots of very nice images! The Fairy wrens are amazing birds and you captured them well, Des. The Goshawk is impressive and very nicely framed.

I can imagine; when I see the stuff you photograph at the lake, that is a true hotspot for nice photography.

Thanks very much Corné. Birdlife Australia ran a poll some years ago for the most popular Australian bird and the Superb Fairy-wren came out on top - despite, or perhaps because of, their notorious infidelity! Everyone loves them.
