Nice one Davy Boy, now you won't have to rely on your phone camera! The x10 optical zoom will be good for birds and wildlife!

That's exactly what I wanted, coupled with a fast shutter-speed for birds. It also has a manual focus, so you don;t have to worry about the camera deciding to focus on the background. Looking forward to trying it out...Might even get a corncrake with it...
