I can't think of a better way to beat stress than spending time watching these super little birds.
This was taken on Lunga in June this year.

Wont be around much Tuesday as away all day on work business, then going to a talk hosted by Chris Packham the TV presenter in the evening, so posting this early and will try to catch up with everybody when I get a minute free.

Hope you are all well, and thanks for looking.
