      1. Did you have to sit for long and wait or was it just a fortunate coincidence? Posted 5 years ago
        1. In fact it was a longer stay - about 2 hours. From quite a big distance, there was no way to get closer to the birds. So we didn't need to hide - just stayed there and waited for some action, trying to capture interesting moments. Posted 5 years ago
