Hi all, had a great morning down by the river !

Put 2 new perches in and bingo.............She landed on both !

Struggled a bit with the harsh light...............But you can't have it all....Can you ?

Cheers for all your C/Cs and the Highly Commended and the Guest Editors Awards, never had a double before.....Very much appreciated .

Keith
