Well spotted and excellent capture! If I were you and have photoshop, then I would definitely do the following after opening in PS: Duplicate layer then click Image > Adjustments > Shadows/Highlights and alter all figures starting from the top... 86,50,29, 33,50,30, +6 and +9 then OK and flatten layers. I will also clone out the bird behind. You may see some noise after this but that can be removed too by using Topaz filter or Noiseware filter, this will bring so much of details back. It will only take 1 minute! Thanks.

Hi Harry,
I only have PS Elements but had a quick go at approximating the changes you suggest. It does bring out more detail, I'll keep experimenting.
Thanks for the positive comment and the suggestions for improving the image, very welcome. Jack
