It's a great place for a visit.
Looking forward to seeing some of the shots Den,
Alan

PS I don't suppose you got the name of the 2 birds I've uploaded in the last couple of days?

A fine and detail image of this java sparrow. The long focal has give you a very pleasing cream bokeh which sets the bird off very nicely.
