Camera Problems

Sea watching this morning was uneventful with a couple of Arctic Skuas(probably the birds that have been around for weeks) a few Gannets and Terns, a Red-throated Diver on the sea, c250 Swallows and House Martins over, 350+ Goldfinches a few Siskins, Chaffinches and Redpolls, also 12 Pied Wagtails. The Glaucous Gull flew in and landed less than 10mts from me, I raised my camera and pressed the shutter and disaster, nothing happened, some frantic fiddling still nothing.The camera was saying both batteries and a spare apparently completely exhausted, which could not be as all 3 were charged fully last night. So spent the rest day on a trip to London to hopefully get the problem sorted. The repairers tried their batteries and still nothing. Will have to use my 40D for a while.
