With that price difference in the UK, there would be less incentive to choose a D600 for sure, In the US, the difference is $800 so I can see many people being attracted to the D600. The D800 is, for most shooters, a better deal, the AF system alone would be worth the price difference. The high res metering sensor just adds to the imbalance. For those needing reach, like you, for wildlife/birds, the D800 is really the best DX camera ever, if one can get used to the smaller effective VF area. Personally, I like the wide out-of-frame display border area for visually tracking action outside the frame. That allows one to anticipate rate and speed of position change until movement enters the scene and be better prepared to release the shutter at the optimum time. That can reduce the need for using burst mode.
During a visit to Poland last week, I used the 70-200vr in crop mode quite a bit for architectural detail and was quite happy with the results so there was no need to carry the D7000.
