New lens, old favourites

Young Jackdaw with 'brown' plumage mutation? One of two out of a hundred or so that were brown rather than black and grey
Took my new lens for a walk today. Was planning to buy it before I went to Malaysia, and while there were plenty of moments when it would have been handy, the thought of its first trip being into the haze of Sumatra was too much for me. So what did I test the L glass on - old favourites: corvids and gulls... Pretty pleased with the results...

Ah, one of my other old favourites - a lovely hooded Black-headed Gull
A juvenile Black-headed Gull - nice to see a couple of this year's young already on the wing
