Thanks guys,
Photographed the bikes at Red Star on Friday and the birding is really helping my panning for the sports images.
Starting to feel much happier with the sports action stuff now.
They call me Judy or Judes...

Lovely pics.

Intrigued to see Cape cormorant (Rietvlei?) which is usually a marine bird.

I wasn't sure either, had to ask my sister (who really knows her birds) to help ID it.

Super pics!

Thanks.
